Multislice computed tomography (MSCT) for evaluation of myocardial viability Iodinated contrast used for CT scanning accumulate in infarcted myocardium similar to what happens with late gadolinium enhanced (LGE)
Advantages and disadvantages of echocardiographic assessment of myocardial viability Echo based techniques for assessment of myocardial viability has certain advantages as well as limitations. Echocardiagraphic techniques are safe
Myocardial contrast echocardiography Myocardial contrast echocardiography has been used in the assessment of myocardial viability. Downside of myocardial contrast echocardiography is the cost of ultrasound contrast agent (UCA).
Echocardiographic assessment of myocardial viability Diastolic wall thickness will give an idea regarding the myocardial viability. Thin and hyperdense myocardium is likely to be scarred and non viable.
