Figure 1: Myocardial infarction shown by LGE in magnetic resonance imaging and histological staining. Representative slices taken from the left ventricle: LGE shown by phase-sensitive inversion recovery trueFISP sequence (PSIR) (a) compared with 3 successive slices from the same heart after triphenyl tetrazolium chloride staining (b) 24 h after procedure. LGE shown by PSIR sequence (c) compared with 3 slices from the same heart after trichrome staining (d) 1 week after procedure. Arrows indicate area of infarction.
