From: Gradient Spin Echo (GraSE) imaging for fast myocardial T2 mapping

Patient Diagnosis Gender Age ECG changes Troponin I [ng/ml] CRP [mg/l] T2 total [ms]
#1 Acute, diffuse myocarditis Female 42 None 1.6 188.0 68.0 ± 2.4
#2 Acute myocardial infarction Female 53 ST segment elevation 30.1 3.2 62.5 ± 13.1
#3 Takotsubo cardiomyopathy Female 44 Left bundle branch block 9.6 5.1 63.5 ± 6.0
#4 Acute myocarditis Male 28 None 4.1 59.7 57.7 ± 8.7
#5 Acute myocardial infarction Male 68 T-wave abnormalities 5.0 4.1 54.8 ± 4.1
  1. Patient characteristics for five patients with acute myocardial injury. Myocardial T2 relaxation times were obtained with the six-echo variant of the GraSE sequence.
  2. CRP = C-reactive protein; ECG = Electrocardiogram; T2 = Global myocardial T2 relaxation times.
