Myocardial perfusion measurements by spin-labeling under different vasodynamic states.

In this study absolute myocardial perfusion was determined using a spin-labeling magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique at 2 Tesla. The technique was applied to 16 healthy volunteers at resting conditions, adenosine-induced stress, and oxygen breathing. Overall myocardial quantitative perfusion was determined as 2.3 +/- 0.8 mL/g/min (rest), 4.2 +/- 1.0… CONTINUE READING
