Abstract

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) perfusion imaging is a robust noninvasive technique to evaluate ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Although qualitative and semiquantitative methods have shown that CMR has high accuracy in diagnosing flow-obstructing lesions in CAD, quantitative ischemic burden is an important variable used in clinical practice for treatment decisions. Quantitative CMR perfusion techniques have evolved significantly, with accuracy comparable with both PET and microsphere evaluation. Routine clinical use of these quantitative techniques has been facilitated by the introduction of automated methods that accelerate the work flow and rapidly generate pixel-based myocardial blood flow maps.
