Black Blood Delayed Enhancement Magnetic Resonance imaging

Duke University is seeking a corporate partner to commercialize a long-sought after method of improved detection of infarcted heart tissue. The technology greatly advances current magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) by providing pulse sequences that render blood and non-infarcted myocardium dark and infarcted tissue light. While currently used methods are sufficient for many patients, this technology can be used to improve imaging in patients with small subendocardial infarcts in which a more sensitive test is necessary.
