a Cardiac MR performed for a patient 5 days post-primary percutaneous coronary intervention. Short-axis EGE sequence showing anterior and entire septal low signal corresponding to a large region of microvascular obstruction. b Corresponding short-axis LGE sequence showing full-thickness hyperenhancement/infarct involving anterior, entire septal, and inferior left ventricular wall. The septal low signal within the infarct corresponds to a large region of microvascular obstruction. Culprit lesion was detected at LAD artery. c: Corresponding Short-axis LGE sequence with post-processing of the LV scar (green) and MVO (yellow) revealing an MVO size = 43% and scar size = 93% of the total left ventricular mass (LVM). d Follow-up short-axis LGE sequence, after 3 months, transmural anterior, transmural septal, and sub-endocardial inferior left ventricular wall fibrosis scar with complete resolution of the MVO
