Effect of the Bolus Size on the Quantification of Myocardial Perfusion Using MRI

A limitation of MRI for cardiac perfusion on routine clinical MR scanners is the trade-off between the temporal resolution and spatial coverage. Assuming that a higher contrast media dose and a slower injection rate allow lower sampling rate without a significant loss of precision in an one compartmental model, we performed a simulation study to compare two contrast injection strategies (wide and narrow bolus). The validity of the protocol was then demonstrated in patients with a history of myocardial infarction, using 201-Tl SPECT imaging as reference.
