Acute myocardial infarcts (AMI) are typically discriminated with T2-STIR imaging [1], albeit with limited specificity [2]. Guided by the association that T2-STIR images identify AMI territories on the basis of edema-related T2 changes, even some of the recently proposed improvements [2,3] have relied on preferential sensitization of magnetization to T2-weighting. However, whether T2-STIR imaging itself may also be sensitive to other sources of contrast have not been fully investigated.
