Myocardial blood flow: Roentgen videodensitometry techniques

Abstract

The standard clinical practice of estimating blood flow in individual coronary arteries from subjective angiographic evalua-tion of the severity of stenosis in these vessels is fraught with error. Most current clinically available methods of determining regional myocardial flow are technically complex and expensive, or limited in resolution, and in simplicity and convenience to the clinician/investigator and his patient.
