Abstract

BACKGROUND: Factor analysis (FA) is an established method for separating myocardium from blood pool by use of oxygen 15-labeled water and positron emission tomography for analyzing myocardial blood flow (MBF). Conventional FA methods generating images from sinograms (sinoFA) are time-consuming, whereas FA can be performed on the reconstructed images (reconFA) in a fraction of time. We validated the MBF values obtained by reconFA versus sinoFA. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 23 volunteers (mean age, 26.6 +/- 3.4 years) MBF was calculated from sinoFA and reconFA and blindly reanalyzed 1 month later by the same observer. Intraobserver agreement and reconFA-versus-sinoFA agreement were assessed according to Bland and Altman (BA). Reproducibility proved excellent for global sinoFA (r = 0.968; P < .001; BA limits, -0.617 to 0.676 mL x min(-1) x g(-1)) and slightly superior for reconFA (r = 0.979; P < .001; BA limits, -0.538 to 0.558 mL x min(-1) x g(-1)), with wider limits of agreement for segmental MBF from sinoFA (r = 0.777; P < .001; BA limits, -1.676 to 1.656 mL x min(-1) x g(-1)) and reconFA (r = 0.844; P < .001; BA limits, -1.999 to 1.992 mL x min(-1) x g(-1)). In addition, sinoFA and reconFA showed excellent correlation (r = 0.975, P < .001) and agreement (BA limits, -0.528 to 0.648 mL x min(-1) x g(-1)) for global and segmental values (r = 0.955; P < .001; BA limits, -1.371 to 1.491 mL x min(-1) x g(-1)). CONCLUSIONS: Use of reconFA allows rapid and reliable quantitative MBF assessment with O-15-labeled water.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
