It has been shown that canine and human hearts exhibit a cardiac cycle-dependent variation of integrated backscatter (cyclic variation) that reflects intrinsic regional contractile performance. To determine whether ultrasound tissue characterization can identify viable though stunned myocardium before recovery of regional wall thickening, transient ischemic injury was produced in eight open chest dogs for 15 min followed by reperfusion for 2 h. Cyclic variation and wall thickening were measured… CONTINUE READING
