Abstract

Figure 1. A short-axis slice of the mid left ventricle illustrating contrast enhancement in the anterior segment (25% transmurality – viable), anterolateral segment (50–75% transmurality – non-viable), inferolateral segment (50% transmurality – potentially viable) Case 1 Mr K P is a 45-year-old man who presented to our hospital with symptoms of exertional breathlessness.
