Background We evaluated whether quantitative circumferential strain (C-strain) analysis using adenosine triphosphate (ATP)stress/rest 3-Tesla (3-T) tagged magnetic resonance (MR) can depict myocardial ischemia as contractile dysfunction on stress. We evaluated whether it can differentiate nonischemia, myocardial ischemia and infarction. We assessed its diagnostic performance in comparison with ATP-stress myocardial perfusion MR and late gadolinium enhancement (LGE)-MR.
