Table 3 Healthy volunteer mean (SD) myocardial blood flow values calculated using dual and single bolus analysis

From: Measurement of myocardial blood flow by cardiovascular magnetic resonance perfusion: comparison of distributed parameter and Fermi models with single and dual bolus

Modeling values/Method Fermi Fermi DP DP DP-First pass DP-First pass
Dual bolus Single bolus Dual bolus Single bolus Dual bolus Single bolus
Myocardial blood flow-Stress (mL/min/mL) 3.57 (0.59)* 4.57 (0.62)* 3.16 (0.71) 3.45 (0.48) 3.39 (0.56) 3.47 (0.50)
Myocardial blood flow-Rest (mL/min/mL) 1.48 (0.40) 1.57 (0.33) 1.23 (0.26) 1.46 (0.29) 1.18 (0.26) 1.34 (0.31)
