This article reviews the imaging manifestations of acute myocardial infarction (MI) on computed tomography (CT) accompanied by case examples and illustrations. This is preceded by a review of the pathophysiology of MI (acute and chronic), a summary of its clinical presentation, and a brief synopsis of the technical aspects of cardiac CT. Several examples of the appearance of acute MI and its complications are shown on routine and cardiac tailored CT, and a sample of the latest advances in imaging technique, including dual-energy CT, are introduced.
