Impact of incomplete ventricular coverage on diagnostic performance of myocardial perfusion imaging

In the context of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), there is ongoing debate on the merits of using technically complex acquisition methods to achieve whole-heart spatial coverage, rather than conventional 3-slice acquisition. An adequately powered comparative study is difficult to achieve given the requirement for two separate stress CMR...

Normal limits for transient ischemic dilation with 99mTc myocardial perfusion SPECT protocols

receives royalties for the quantitative assessment of function, perfusion, and viability, a minority portion of which is distributed to some of the authors of this manuscript (Guido Germano and Piotr J

Imaging cardiac dyssynchrony

Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) has become a preeminent molecular imaging technique to assess ventricular mechanical dyssynchrony. In this article, we outline the motivation for the assessment of dyssynchrony, briefly review the application of echocardiographic and other non-nuclear imaging techniques for that purpose, and detail the technical aspects and validation of phase...

The role of PET quantification in cardiovascular imaging

Positron emission tomography (PET) has several clinical applications in cardiovascular imaging. Myocardial perfusion imaging with PET allows accurate global and regional measurements of myocardial perfusion, myocardial blood flow and function at stress and rest in a single examination. Simultaneous assessment of function and perfusion by PET with quantitative software is...
