Abstract

To assess the clinical utility of the breath-hold turbo spin-echo T2- weighted MRI in patients with acute myocardial infarction, the results of MRI were compared with those of electrocardiography, coronary angiography, and thallium-201 single photon emission tomography (SPECT) in 23 patients and 5 healthy volunteers. To compare MRI and thallium-SPECT, the left ventricle was divided into five segments, and the presence of myocardial infarction was determined in each segment. MR/demonstrated an abnormally bright signal in 49 of 140 segments (five segments each from 23 patients and 5 volunteers); thallium-SPECT showed a fixed perfusion defect in 52 segments, for an 85% diagnostic concordance rate. The size of the myocardial infarction measured on MRI corresponded well to that measured on thallium-SPECT (r = .70, P < .01). Breath-hold turbo spin-echo T2 MRI can be used for detection of acute myocardial infarction in conjunction with thallium-SPECT, especially when accurate localization of lesion, increased spatial resolution, and anatomic landmarks are needed.
