Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Patients with Presence of Myocardial Inflammation. Panel 12: T2 mapping; Panel 3: late gadolinium enhancement imaging. Panel 1—midmyocardial short axis view; Panel 2, 3—horizontal long axis view. A Diffuse myocardial edema/inflammation (Panel 12; black arrows) with corresponding prominent midmyocardial to subepicardial nonischemic enhancement (Panel 3; white arrows) most prominent in the lateral wall in a patient with myocarditis. B Patient post heart transplant with diffuse myocardial edema/inflammation (Panel 12; black arrows) with striking diffuse linear nonischemic midmyocardial enhancement most prominent in the septal and lateral walls (Panel 3; white arrows). Findings concerning for heart transplant rejection. C: Patient with Takotsubo cardiomyopathy with myocardial edema/inflammation in the mid to apical segments (Panel 12; black arrows) with lack of corresponding enhancement in the mid to apical segments. Mild patchy midmyocardial nonischemic fibrosis in the basal lateral wall (Panel 3; white arrow). Panel A, B—T2 prepared (rectangular preparation) pulse sequence with balanced steady state free precession (bSSFP) readout utilized to acquire T2 maps during diastole (1.5 T MAGNETOM Avanto, Siemens Healthineers). Panel C—T2-prepared bSSFP pulse sequence with the use of rectangular T2 preparation pulse utilized to acquire T2 maps during diastole (1.5 T MAGNETOM Sola, Siemens Healthineers)
