OBJECTIVE Correcting the perfusion in areas distal to coronary stenosis (risk) according to that of normal (remote) areas defines the relative myocardial perfusion index, which is similar to the fractional flow reserve (FFR) concept. The aim of this study was to assess the value of relative myocardial perfusion by MRI in predicting lesion-specific inducible ischemia as defined by FFR. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-six patients (33 men and 13 women; mean [± SD] age, 61 ± 9 years) who underwent… CONTINUE READING
