2 new cardiac MRI techniques spot microvascular dysfunction
from MedPage Today
Two novel cardiac MRI techniques performed well under testing, paving the way to the detection of microvascular coronary artery disease (CAD), researchers in England reported. In a head-to-head comparison with gadolinium-based first-pass perfusion imaging, stress T1 mapping was better for detecting obstructive epicardial CAD, researchers reported in the March 6 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Fractional flow reserve and the index of microcirculatory resistance served as reference.
