MRXCAT cardiac perfusion phantom overview. (a) Three slices from apex to base at maximum contrast agent enhancement in the right ventricle, left ventricle and myocardium. (b) Anterior-posterior profiles along dashed line in (a) for all heart beats for breathhold MRXCAT, free-breathing MRXCAT and in-vivo breathhold myocardial perfusion images (left-right). (c) 16 slices of the MRXCAT perfusion phantom, covering the whole left ventricle at a time frame during contrast enhancement. (d-e) Signal intensity curves extracted from the left ventricle (AIF) and the myocardium of stress and rest MRXCAT perfusion phantoms generated with saturation delays of 150 ms (d) and 10 ms (e).
