T2-mapping in acute myocardial infarction. CMR in a 47-year-old male patient 2 days after apical inferior infarction. The distal left anterior descending artery was occluded. All images shown here are in two-chamber-orientation. (A): systolic cine frame reveals apical-inferior wall motion abnormality. (B): T2-map shows an apical area of increased T2 reflected by orange color with a centre of lower T2 indicated by pink colour. (C): conventional T2-weighted STIR image shows focal area of hyperintense signal with a hypointense core. (D): Late gadolinium enhancement shows myocardial scar with core of microvascular obstruction.
