Core Tip Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging is considered the gold standard non-invasive imaging technique for identification of myocardial infarction and viability. However, not all patients are eligible for CMR due to potential contraindications, especially in patients with electronic implants. Although electrocardiogram, nuclear imaging and echocardiography have been used to identify myocardial infarction, they generally have low sensitivity, particular for small scar regions. Cardiac computed tomography represents a viable alternative to CMR, and low voltage late enhancement cardiac computed tomography angiography imaging provides the best diagnostic accuracy compared to high and mixed voltage acquisitions for identification of myocardial infarct regions.
