Rationale and Objectives: To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of semiautomated global quantification of left ventricular myocardial perfusion derived from stress dynamic computed tomography myocardial perfusion imaging (CTMPI) for detection of territorial perfusion deficits (PD). Materials and Methods: Dynamic CTMPI datasets of 71 patients were analyzed using semiautomated volume-based software to calculate global myocardial blood flow (MBF), myocardial blood volume, and volume transfer constant. Optimal cutoff values to assess the diagnostic accuracy of these parameters for detection of one- to three-vessel territories with PD in comparison to visual analysis were calculated. Results: Nonsignificant differences (P = 0.694) were found for average global MBF in patients without PD and single-territorial PD. Significant differences were found for mean global MBF in patients with PD in two (P < 0.0058) and three territories (P < 0.0003). Calculated optimal thresholds for global MBF and myocardial blood volume resulted in a sensitivity, specificity, and negative predictive value of 100% for detection of three-vessel territory PD. For detection of ≥2 territories with PD, global MBF was superior to other parameters (sensitivity 81.3%, specificity 90.9%, and negative predictive value 94.3%). Conclusions: Semiautomated global quantification of left ventricular MBF during stress dynamic CTMPI shows high diagnostic accuracy for detection of ≥2 vessel territories with PD, facilitating identification of patients with multi-territorial myocardial PD.

Abstract

Rationale and Objectives: To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of semiautomated global quantification of left ventricular myocardial perfusion derived from stress dynamic computed tomography myocardial perfusion imaging (CTMPI) for detection of territorial perfusion deficits (PD). Materials and Methods: Dynamic CTMPI datasets of 71 patients were analyzed using semiautomated volume-based software to calculate global myocardial blood flow (MBF), myocardial blood volume, and volume transfer constant. Optimal cutoff values to assess the diagnostic accuracy of these parameters for detection of one- to three-vessel territories with PD in comparison to visual analysis were calculated. Results: Nonsignificant differences (P = 0.694) were found for average global MBF in patients without PD and single-territorial PD. Significant differences were found for mean global MBF in patients with PD in two (P < 0.0058) and three territories (P < 0.0003). Calculated optimal thresholds for global MBF and myocardial blood volume resulted in a sensitivity, specificity, and negative predictive value of 100% for detection of three-vessel territory PD. For detection of ≥2 territories with PD, global MBF was superior to other parameters (sensitivity 81.3%, specificity 90.9%, and negative predictive value 94.3%). Conclusions: Semiautomated global quantification of left ventricular MBF during stress dynamic CTMPI shows high diagnostic accuracy for detection of ≥2 vessel territories with PD, facilitating identification of patients with multi-territorial myocardial PD.
