OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to evaluate the myocardium structure in patients with chest pain who were determined to have moderate and/or high risk for cardiac ischemic heart disease (IHD) but who had normal findings on conventional coronary angiography by using native cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) T1 mapping and comparing with healthy volunteers. METHODS: A total of 50 patients and 30 healthy volunteers who underwent CMRI were included in our prospective study. Patients whose clinical findings were compatible with stable angina pectoris, with moderate and/or high risk for IHD, but whose conventional coronary angiography was normal, were our patient group. Native T1 values were measured for 17 myocardial segments (segmented based on American Heart Association recommendations) by two radiologists independently. The data obtained were statistically compared with the sample t-test. RESULTS: Myocardial native T1 values were found to be significantly prolonged in the patient group compared with the control group (p<0.05). Inter-observer reliability for native T1 value measurements of groups was high for both patient and control groups (α = 0.92 for the patient group and 0.96 for the control group). CONCLUSION: Findings suggestive of ischemia were detected by T1 mapping in the myocardium of our patients. For this reason, it is recommended that this patient group should be included in early diagnosis and close follow-up assessments for IHD.
