"In the setting of acute MI, cardiac MR can also be used to assess the presence and extent of myocardium at risk (myocardial edema), myocardial salvage, microvascular obstruction, intramyocardial hemorrhage, and infarct size, all markers of myocardial injury that have prognostic value," according to the fourth definition.
However, the smoothness of the graft flow curve may be a reliable predictor of postoperative graft patency.[13] Several articles on intraoperative bypass graft flow have been published: an MGF of >20 ml/min is considered indicative of a good graft and the PI <3 is considered an adequate value for a good graft.[14],[15]Lowensohn et al .[16] stated that the RCA systolic flow was proportionately significantly greater than the LCA systolic flow, and the differences between the RCA and LCA systolic flow may be explained by the temporal relationships between the coronary perfusion pressure and intramyocardial tension.
