Quantification of global myocardial oxygenation in humans: initial experience

Abstract

PURPOSE To assess the feasibility of our newly developed cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) methods to quantify global and/or regional myocardial oxygen consumption rate (MVO2) at rest and during pharmacologically-induced vasodilation in normal volunteers. METHODS A breath-hold T2 quantification method is developed to calculate oxygen extraction… (More)
