Evaluation of myocardial ischemic damage of various ages by computerized transmission tomography. Time-dependent effects of contrast material

C B HigginsJ D Newell


The potential role of computerized transmission tomography (CTT) in the detection and quantitation of acute myocardial ischemic damage was assessed in 42 excised canine hearts at 2 hours, 8 hours, and 48 hours after coronary occlusion. The CTT scan detected by myocardial damage that was 2-48 hours old each time the presence of regional ischemia was confirmed by histochemical straining or epicardial electrocardiographic mapping. Intravenous administration of contrast material enhanced the x-ray attenuation of areas of ischemic damage of 8 and 48 hours duration compared with normal myocardium, but enhanced only normal myocardium in those of 2 hours duration. Volumetric estimation of the extent of damage from the CTT scans in dogs with ischemia of 48 hours duration showed a close linear relationship with the morphometric volume in the absence of contrast material. Quantitation of the area of ischemic damage from the CTT scan after contrast administration resulted in substantial underestimation of the volume of damaged tissue.
