Table 1 Oxygen-sensitive T2 changes

From: T2-based BOLD effect in myocardial infarction: a study at 3 T

Bo = 1.5 T T2 (ms, rest) T2 (ms, stress) % change
Theory 44.1 45.1 2.3
Experiment 43.2 44.1 2.1
Bo = 3 T T2 (ms, rest) T2 (ms, stress) % change
Theory 40.2 46.3 15.2
Experiment 40.4 46.6 15.3*
  1. * - P < 0.0001
  2. Theory - Two-compartment tissue model
  3. Resting blood volume was assumed to be 5%, which increases by 30% in stress state
