Adenosine stress and rest T1-mapping differentiates ischemic, infarcted, remote and normal myocardium - a novel gadolinium-free method for ischemia detection with immediate applications in coronary artery disease


Background In stable coronary artery disease (CAD), accurate ischemia detection enables targeted revascularization, which improves clinical outcomes. Myocardial blood volume (MBV) may be a better ischemia marker than myocardial blood flow. Adenosine stress and rest T1-mapping is a novel gadolinium-free CMR technique that reflects changes in MBV through its… (More)
