By serially imaging the myocardium during the initial transit of gadolinium contrast, magnetic resonance perfusion imaging can accurately assess relative reductions in regional myocardial blood flow and identify hemodynamically significant coronary artery disease. Models can be used to quantify myocardial blood flow (in milliliters/minute/gram) on the basis of dynamic signal changes within the myocardium and left ventricular cavity. Although the mathematical modeling involved in this type of… CONTINUE READING
