Open-access datasets in cardiac magnetic resonance provide the opportunity to approach cardiac research studies in an integrated, multidisciplinary and systematic framework. In this report, we present a CMR dataset obtained by observing patients with previous myocardial infarction.
The results show that scar tissue extent, left ventricular dilatation, and wall motion abnormalities, together with age, are independently associated with cardiac death. Analogous datasets could be used to compare results obtained by imaging techniques identifying patients at higher risk of cardiac death, and to allow generation of a multiparametric score for risk stratification of patients with previous myocardial infarction.
