Because of technical challenges very little is known about absolute myocardial perfusion in humans in vivo during physical exercise. In the present study we applied positron emission tomography (PET) in order to 1) investigate the effects of dynamic bicycle exercise on myocardial perfusion and 2) clarify the possible effects of endurance training on myocardial perfusion during exercise. Myocardial perfusion was measured in endurance-trained and healthy untrained subjects at rest and during… CONTINUE READING
