This article presents a study related to the early restoration of myocardial perfusion after percutaneous angioplasty and stenting (PTCA) and delineation with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI is an ideal tool for serial myocardial perfusion studies since image acquisition is achieved without use of ionizing radiation. Early restoration of myocardial perfusion following PTCA and stent implantation can be delineated with perfusion MRI. MRI has the potential to be a valuable tool for patient follow-up and the evaluation of revascularization strategy efficacy.
