PURPOSE To combine three magnetic resonance (MR) imaging modalities-dobutamine stress cine, first pass, and late contrast material-enhanced T1-weighted imaging-and to compare the results with 2-[fluorine 18]fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) in the assessment of unviable myocardium in coronary artery disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten patients with multivessel coronary artery disease underwent MR imaging before and 6 months after bypass surgery. Left ventricular… CONTINUE READING
