Precise measurements of regional myocardial blood flow heterogeneity had to be developed before one could seek causation for the heterogeneity. Deposition techniques (particles or molecular microspheres) are the most precise, but imaging techniques have begun to provide high enough resolution to allow in vivo studies. Assigning causation has been difficult. There is no apparent association with the regional concentrations of energy-related enzymes or substrates, but these are measures of status… CONTINUE READING
