MRFP perfusion imaging can now be used clinically on most MR scanner systems (1.0 to 1.5 T). The current experimental data demonstrate that MRFP imaging allows the quantitative assessment of myocardial blood flow changes and accurate measurements of collateral flow, including changes in the collateral dependent zones. Certain protocols, however, as outlined here have to be followed to obtain all the possible diagnostic information. Based on the current data on MRFP imaging, it is realistic to… CONTINUE READING
