Left ventricle angiography during diastole (A) and systole (B) showing apical and mid ventricular wall motion abnormalities and hyperkinesis of the basal segment (arrow). MRI in long axis showing that the akinetic regions are hypoenhanced and dark suggesting the presence of viable myocardium (C). Reference after an acute myocardial infarction showing hyperenhancement indicative of necrosis. From reference (3) with permission.
