In panel C, MRI in longaxis view reveals that akinetic regions seen on ventriculography are dark and hypoenhanced, consistent with presence of viable myocardium. Panel D, is present for purposes of comparison, shows hyperenhancement, indicative of necrosis and decreased viability, after acute anterior myocardial infarction.
