Title:
The influence of myocardial blood flow and volume of distribution on late Gd-DTPA kinetics in ischemic heart failure. 
Abstract:
PURPOSE: To determine the mechanism of enhancement of contrast-enhanced MRI (ceMRI) in chronic ischemic myocardium. While ceMRI can identify scar tissue in chronic ischemic myocardium, the mechanism of enhancement is not completely understood. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 11 patients with ischemic heart failure (ejection fraction [EF] 28 +/- 9%) were imaged with ceMRI and positron emission tomography (PET) to measure myocardial blood flow (MBF). Longitudinal relaxation rate (T1) of blood, n...    »
