Case 004 Non Compaction and Ischemic Heart Disease


  • Goldfarb et al  “We also found that fat deposition was predominately mid myocardial or mid epicardial, whereas results of prior autopsy and CT studies suggest that fat deposition almost always affects the subendocardium (28). MR imaging is unique for the study of fat deposition owing to its sensitivity to the off-resonance properties of fat, allowing fat-water separation imaging and the viewing of MI in all stages by using LGE imaging. “
