OBJECTIVE. CT myocardial perfusion imaging is rapidly becoming an important adjunct to coronary CT angiography for the anatomic and functional assessment of coronary artery disease with a single modality. Existing techniques for CT myocardial perfusion imaging include static techniques, which provide a snapshot of the myocardial blood pool, and dynamic techniques. CONCLUSION. This review provides a systematic overview of the presently available approaches for the assessment of myocardial perfusion at CT, including diagnostic accuracy and limitations.
