BACKGROUND Perfusion imaging techniques intended to identify regional limitations in coronary flow reserve in viable myocardium need to identify 2-fold differences in regional flow during coronary vasodilation consistently. This study evaluated the suitability of current first-pass magnetic resonance approaches for evaluating such differences, which are 1 to 2 orders of magnitude less than in myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS Graded regional differences in vasodilated flow were… CONTINUE READING
