Table 14 Recommendations for CMR in patients with STEMI

From: Role of cardiovascular magnetic resonance in the guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology

Recommendations for imaging during hospitalization and at discharge in patients with STEMI Classa Levelb Page
If echocardiography is not feasible, CMR may be used as an alternative for assessment of infarct size and resting LV function. IIb C 26
For patients with multivessel disease, or in whom revascularization of other vessels is considered, stress testing or imaging (e.g. using stress myocardial perfusion scintigraphy, stress echocardiography, positron emission tomography or CMR) for ischaemia and viability is indicated before or after discharge.
