Abbildung 1: 13N-ammonia PET in the evaluation of multivessel CAD. Value of hyperemic MBFs and MFR in an abnormal 13N-ammonia myocardial perfusion PET/CT study. A 54-year-old man with increasing chest pain during daily activities. He had previous percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stent employment in the LAD. Cardiovascular risk profile with advanced obesity (body mass index of 41 kg/m2 ), dyslipidemia, and hypertension. (A): Regadenoson-stress and rest 13N-ammonia PET/CT images in corresponding short-axis (top), vertical long-axis (middle), and horizontal long-axis (bottom) slices. On stress-images, there is a large area of severely decrease in myocardial perfusion, involving the inferior and inferolateral walls extending to the antero-lateral, anterior, and apical wall segments but less in severity that becomes reversible on rest images. In addition, a transient ischemic dilation (TID) of 1.3 is noted on the stress-rest 13N-ammonia images indicative of diffuse ischemia-induced myocardial stunning. (B): Regional myocardial blood flow quantification (MBF) and myocardial flow reserve (MFR) calculation. The summarized quantitative data signify an impairment of hyperemic MBF in the LAD distribution (1.58 ml/g/min), but also and more pronounced in the LCx and RCA distribution (1.07 and 1.09 ml/g/min, respectively). Correspondingly, the MFR is abnormally reduced in all three major coronary territories, most pronounced in the LCs (1.29), followed by RCA (1.36), and LAD (1.61) distribution, respectively. Invasive coronary angiography (not shown) in this patient unraveled indeed severe multivessel CAD accounting for the observed diffuse ischemia. The proximal LAD had previous extensive stenting without significant stenosis, whilst the mid-portion of the LAD demonstrated a ≈ 90–95% in-stent restenosis. The LCx demonstrated a 70% lesion in the posterolateral marginal brach, while in a dominant RCA, the posterior descending artery (PDA) was occluded.

Abbildung 2: 13N-ammonia PET in the evaluation of CMD. Value of PET-determined hyperemic MBFs and MFR in the identification and characterization of CMD. A 65-year-old woman with recurrent chest pain and shortness of breath during daily activities. Cardiovascular risk profile with obesity (body mass index of 40 kg/m2 ), dyslipidemia, and hypertension. (A): Regadenoson-stress and rest 13N-ammonia PET/CT images in corresponding short-axis (top), vertical long-axis (middle), and horizontal long-axis (bottom) slices. On stress-images and rest perfusion images, there is homogenous radiotracer uptake of the left ventricle. Thus, no reversible radiotracer uptake to suggest regional ischemia and normal rest perfusion. Hemodynamically obstructive CAD lesions therefore can be widely ruled out. Gated peak-stress and rest PET images (not shown) demonstrated normal left ventricular size and wall motion associated with a left ventricular ejection fraction of 50% and 52%, respectively. (B): Display of quantitative MBF data unravel globally reduced hyperemic MBFs with only 1.29 mL/g/min (normal value > 1.80 mL/g/min) and decreased MFR with 1.71 (normal value > 2.0) to signify moderately severe CMD that may reflect a functional substrate for reported anginal symptoms.
