Figure 3: MR imaging in a patient with an acute myocardial infarction (upper row, (a)–(c)) and coincidence of an old myocardial infarction (lower row, (d)-(e)). T2w images with ((a) and (d)) and without ((b) and (e)) fat suppression help to differentiate between the acute phase (edema seen at (a) and (b) (white full) arrow) and chronic stage of an infarction (((d) and (e)), white-dotted arrows). At postcontrast imaging, in the acute phase ((c), black arrow) and chronic stage ((f), black-dotted arrow) infarcted areas demonstrate hyperenhancement, however, with different signal intensities.
