S.V. Fedkiv, S.S. Telychkun. Magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of the ischemic myocardial lesions of the left ventricle.

This literature review concerns diagnosis of ischemic heart disease with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) using different techniques: T1, T2, contrast-enhanced cardiac MRI (MR perfusion, late gadolinium enhancement), cardiac MRI with pharmacological stress test, cine-MRI. A special emphasis is paid to hibernating myocardium, T1 mapping and extracellular volume measurement, left ventricular segmentation.
