  1. Raw scan: MRI scanned after the heart had been washed out with physiological saline immediately after removal
  2. Pre-cut scan: MRI scanned with the formalin-fixed heart thoroughly immersed in formalin solution
  3. Post-cut scan: MRI scanned after the fixed heart had been sliced, with the specimen closest to the papillary muscles chosen for scanning by the same method as the raw and pre-cut scans
  4. M: F = 14:7 Age (y), mean (SD) = 65.0 ± 19.7
  5. Pre-cut scan (day): scan day from death, mean (SD) = 15.4 ± 10.0
  6. Post-cut scan (day): scan day from death, mean (SD) = 68.0 ± 49.6
