Introduction The assessment of myocardial perfusion has shown to provide high diagnostic and prognostic information for the management of patients with coronary artery disease. Absolute quantification of perfusion remains a challenge for the measurement of myocardial perfusion reserve by a variety of invasive and non-invasive imaging techniques. Previous studies established PET as a noninvasive gold standard for the quantification of myocardial perfusion under rest and stress conditions[1… CONTINUE READING
