Reproducibility of Magnetic Resonance Myocardial Salvage Index
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.

The myocardial salvage assessed by using multimodal cardiac magnetic resonance imaging is a rather new technique which can be used as a surrogate endpoint to reduce the sample size in studies comparing different reperfusion strategies in myocardial infarction. As reproducibility of myocardial salvage has not been evaluated appropriately, we aim to scan 20 patients on 2 subsequent days to evaluate reproducibility of myocardial salvage index.
