Table 2 Myocardial blood flow in remote and ischaemic coronary territories quant ified using each surface coil intensity correction technique in patients with coronary artery disease

From: Quantitative pixel-wise measurement of myocardial blood flow: The impact of surface coil-related field inhomogeneity and a comparison of methods for its correction

  Remote territory MBF (mL/min/kg) Ischaemic territory MBF (mL/min/kg) Difference (mL/min/kg)
PD-SCIC 2.24 ± 0.78 1.75 ± 0.53 0.50 ± 0.63
SSFP-SCIC 2.46 ± 1.03 1.84 ± 0.60 0.63 ± 0.89
No-SCIC 2.31 ± 1.05 2.25 ± 0.99 0.06 ± 0.91
  1. See text for details. MBF indicates myocardial blood flow; PD-SCIC perfusion quantification performed using a proton density-based surface coil intensity correction technique; SSFP-SCIC perfusion quantification performed using a saturation recovery steady-state free precession-based surface coil intensity correction technique; No-SCIC perfusion quantification performed without surface coil intensity correction.
