Abstract

We have evaluated the use of deconvolution using an exponential approximation basis for the quantification of myocardial blood flow from perfusion cardiovascular magnetic resonance. Our experiments, based on simulated signal intensity curves, phantom acquisitions, and clinical image data, indicate that exponential deconvolution allows for accurate quantification of myocardial blood flow. Together with automated respiratory motion correction myocardial contour delineation, the exponential deconvolution enables efficient and reproducible quantification of myocardial blood flow in clinical routine.
