Representative mid left ventricular short axis T1 maps, T2 maps and LGE short-axis images from three patients demonstrating varying degrees of myocardial salvage. In patient A, both the T1 and T2 maps delineate a large area of myocardial edema in the left anterior descending (LAD) territory (black arrow), corresponding to the AAR, with no significant myocardial infarct on LGE image (red arrow), indicating complete myocardial salvage. In patient B, the T1 and T2 maps again delineate an area of myocardial edema in the LAD territory (black arrow), with a subendocardal myocardial infarct on the LGE image (red arrow), indicating some myocardial salvage. In patient C, the T1 and T2 maps delineate an area of myocardial edema in the right coronary artery territory (black), with a transmural myocardial infarct containing some microvascular obstruction (hypoenhancement on T2 map and LGE images) on the LGE image (red arrow), indicating minimal myocardial salvage
