Mean (±SD) R2 values in the MI regions as delineated by LGE (black squares). MI R2 was significantly different from remote R2 throughout, except on day 14. Peak ME (lowest R2) was detected on day 6, and ME retreated and R2 returned to baseline by day 14. Peak R2 was detected in mature scars at 8 weeks. Remote R2 (grey circles) stayed constant and was not different from the baseline (solid line) at any of the time points over the course of 8 weeks
