  • necrosis
  • Myocardial necrosis (i.e.MI) is said to be present if the maximal concentration of cTnT or cTnI exceeds the decision limit (99 percent of the values for a reference control group) on at least one occasion during the 24 hours after the index clinical event. (factbites.com)
  • For early detection of myocardial necrosis , sensitivity of this laboratory test is superior to that of the creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB). (factbites.com)
  • contraction
  • The latest scien- tific findings on fundamentals of myocardial contraction encouraged us to organize this international symposium held in Rottach-Egern at Tegernsee (Germany), June 17 to 19, 1976 sponsored by the European Society of Cardio~ogy. (springer.com)
  • myocardium
  • As the duration of the occlusion increases, the area of myocardial cell death enlarges, extending from the endocardium to the myocardium and ultimately to the epicardium . (factbites.com)
  • The technique involves the intravenous injection of small amounts of radioactive tracer (gamma-emitting radioisotope), which is avidly taken up by the cardiomyocytes so that the initial myocardial tracer distribution is in proportion to the viable myocardium. (medscape.com)

  • Describes a sequential approach for the detection of myocardial borders in M-mode echocardiograms, which takes into account physiological knowledge. (epfl.ch)
