This project investigates the utility of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) T1-mapping in assessment of ischaemia in non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI). T1-mapping is a novel quantitative CMR technique that can potentially improve assessment of patients presenting with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We hypothesised that T1-mapping can identify the acute myocardial territory at risk downstream the culprit coronary artery, distinguishing it from bystander disease.
