Transgenic C2C12 grafts overexpressing ferritin were detected in infarcted mouse heart as areas of hypointensity in T2*-weighted black-blood improved motion-sensitized-driven equilibrium (iMSDE) and bright-blood gradient echo (GRE) sequences using a 3-T scanner; the signal intensity ratio was reduced significantly by 20% and 30%, respectively. Unlabeled cells transplanted to mouse heart did not change the MRI signal intensity. MRI graft size measurements were highly correlated with histology (r = 0.79 for T2* iMSDE and r = 0.89 for T2* GRE)
