Different MRI approaches to assessing myocardial viability. Above in this figure is shown a short-axis slice through the left ventricle. The black myocardium represents normal, viable myocardium while the white myocardium represents chronic dysfunctional myocardium. Three approaches or a combination of approaches can be used to determine the myocardial substrate underlying the chronic dysfunction
