MaR by T2-STIR over the first week. A) MaR as % of LV mass over time; B) diagnostic image quality over time; and C) Ratio of correctly assigned culprit vessel compared to angiography over time. Note that there is no significant change in MaR during the first week in any of the above aspects. Open and closed circles show mean values of MaR by CE-SSFP and T2-STIR respectively. Error bars show 1 standard deviation. MaR=Myocardium at risk, LV=Left ventricular mass, T2-STIR= T2-weighted short tau inversion recovery, CE-SSFP = contrast enhanced steady state free precession, LGE=late gadolinium enhancement.
