BACKGROUND: -Although accelerated high-spatial-resolution perfusion-CMR has been shown to be clinically feasible, there has not yet been a direct comparison with standard-resolution methods. We hypothesised that higher spatial resolution detects more subendocardial ischemia and leads to greater diagnostic accuracy for the detection CAD. This study compared the diagnostic accuracy of high-resolution and standard-resolution cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) myocardial perfusion imaging in patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS AND RESULTS: -One-hundred and eleven patients were recruited to undergo two separate perfusion-CMR studies at 1.5-T, one with standard-resolution (2.5x2.5mm in-plane) and one with high-resolution (1.6x1.6mm in-plane) acquisition. High-resolution acquisition was facilitated by eight-fold k-t broad linear speed up technique (BLAST) acceleration. Two observers visually graded perfusion in each myocardial segment on a 4-point scale. Segmental scores were summed to produce a perfusion score for each patient. All patients underwent invasive coronary angiography and CAD was defined as stenosis ≥ 50% luminal diameter (quantitative coronary angiography). CMR data were successfully obtained in 100 patients. In patients with CAD (n=70), more segments were determined to have subendocardial ischemia with high-resolution than with standard-resolution acquisition (279 vs.108; p<0.001). High-resolution acquisition had a greater diagnostic accuracy than standard-resolution for identifying single-vessel disease (area under the curve [AUC]: 0.88 vs. 0.73; p<0.001) or multi-vessel disease (AUC: 0.98 vs. 0.91; p=0.002) and overall (AUC: 0.93 vs. 0.83; p<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: -High-resolution perfusion-CMR has greater overall diagnostic accuracy than standard-resolution acquisition for the detection of CAD in both single and multi-vessel disease and detects more subendocardial ischemia.
