Table 1 Mean T2* and T2 values from hemorrhagic, non-hemorrhagic and remote territories were computed by averaging across all the days from all the animals

From: Detecting reperfusion myocardial hemorrhage with T2 and T2* maps at 1.5T

Region Remote Myocardium Hemorrhagic infarction (MH+) Non-hemorrhagic infarction (MH-) % Change with respect to remote myocardium  
Technique MH+ MH-    
T2* (ms) 40.5 ± 5.0 23.0 ± 4.9 43.3 ± 5.6 -42.1 ± 14.1%* 7.9 ± 17.3%
T2 (ms) 54.9 ± 6.0 62.3 ± 5.1 72.5 ± 4.3 12.8 ± 14.4 % 35/3 ± 11.3%*
  1. Mean percentage changes of T2* and T2 values in hemorrhagic and nom-hemorrhagic infarctions with respect to remote territories are shown. Statistically significant changers (p<0.05) are denoted with an asterisk (*). While there was a significant decrease in T2* in hemorrhagic infarctions with respect to remote territories, T2 changes were insignificant. In non-hemorrhagic infarctions T2 was significantly higher, while T2* change was insignificant.
