We developed mathematical modeling tools for mapping 3D infarct geometry from multislice late gadolinium enhancement data, allowing fusion with multislice MR tagging data, in mice with myocardial infarction. Five C57BL/6 mice were imaged at baseline, 1, 7 and 28 days after 60 min occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. The 3D infarct geometry was mapped in material coordinates, and registered with 3D strain, showing permanent dysfunction in infarcted segments, intermediate function in the adjacent zone, and maintained function in the remote zone. 3D mapping of late enhancement and strain allows registration of multiple studies in a consistent framework.
