Abstract

Much uncertainty exists about the pathophysiological significance of narrowings in the coronary arteries, especially those of moderate degree, as well as about the importance of diffuse coronary artery disease. Analysis of the contrast dynamics in the myocardium may provide pathophysiological information with which these problems can be solved or at least approached in a quantitative manner.
