Grahic Jump Location
Short-axis slice images at end-diastole and end-systole from a sample study with a remote myocardial infarction. The three small arrows indicate where a region meets the MR criteria for infarction and the large arrow indicates where a region meets the criteria for hibernating myocardium (see text). This patient is not from the current study group.
