OBJECTIVE The potential of MR imaging for evaluating myocardial perfusion and viability may make it the imaging procedure of choice for examining patients with ischemic heart disease. Accordingly, the purpose of this study is to determine the value of pharmacologically stressed, dynamically enhanced turbo-fast low-angle shot (FLASH) MR imaging in detecting chronic coronary artery disease. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Five patients who had coronary angiography within the past 6-12 months were included… CONTINUE READING
