Table 4 Global Myocardial Perfusion and Oxygenation in Volunteers (Data is presented as mean (SD))

From: Quantification of global myocardial oxygenation in humans: initial experience

Method   T2 MBF
(mL/g/min)
MBV
(mL/g)
OEF MVO2
(μmol/g/min)
T2sen*
T2prep Rest 44 (6) 0.89 (0.36) 0.06 (0.02) 0.73 (0.05) 5.2 (1.7)  
  Aden 49 (5)† 2.97 (0.75)† 0.10 (0.02)† 0.37 (0.05)† 9.2 (2.4) ξ 4.8(5.1)
TSE Rest 55 (4)††    0.73 (0.05) 5.2 (1.7)  
  Aden 59 (4) †    0.41(0.14)† 10.4 (5.1) 3.2(2.9)
  1. OEF at rest are values of coronary sinus in Table 2
  2. MBF and MBV were calculated from the first-pass perfusion imaging data sets.
  3. *T2sen or T2 sensitivity = percentage of T2 change/100% increase in MBF
  4. Aden = Adenosine vasodilation
  5. P < 0.01 for comparison between rest and adenosine.
  6. ξ P < 0.05 for comparison between rest and adenosine.
  7. ††P < 0.05 for comparison between T2prep and TSE methods.
