Inducible ischemia

Case Study
Dr. Westwood, Mark, M.D. London Chest Hospital United Kingdom

Patient history

A 67-year-old man was admitted to the London Chest Hospital with a troponin negative acute coronary syndrom on the background of increasing angina.

The patient had previously had a myocardial infarction 10 years ago.

MR examination

Cardiac MR with the 32-channel SENSE Torso/Cardiac coil provides a high resolution 2D cine with acquired voxel size of 1.8 mm x 1.8 mm x 8 mm.

Stress images

Stress images show significant anterior and septal peri-infarct ischemia extending inferiorly.

The mid-ventricular anterior and anterolateral near-transmural infarction extends to the subendocardium of the apical anterior segment.

Further subendocardial infarction is seen in the mid-ventricular and apical septal and inferior segments.

Using the Achieva and the 32-channel SENSE Torso/Cardiac coil gave crisp, easy-to-interpret cardiac images. With excellent coverage and high SENSE factors, the new coil allows SENSE in any direction for exceptional flexibility.

The 32-channel coil permits excellent image resolution and image quality to be obtained and more robust localization of inducible perfusion defects.
