Table 1 SNR, contrast-to-noise ratio, and relative SI values in different regions of interest in myocardium at TI0.

From: Assessment of myocardial infarction in mice by Late Gadolinium Enhancement MR imaging using an inversion recovery pulse sequence at 9.4T

a) SNR:  
   Normal myocardium 17.2 ± 2.4*
   Infarcted myocardium 82.1 ± 10.8
   Blood 48.7 ± 16.6
b) Contrast-to-noise ratio:  
   Infarcted compared with normal myocardium 76.6 ± 19.8
   Infarcted compared with blood 25.7 ± 14.7
   Blood compared with normal myocardium 40.6 ± 21.2
c) Relative SI (%)  
   Infarcted compared with normal myocardium 344.9 ± 60.4
   Blood compared with normal myocardium 144.6 ± 77.3
