Coronary Flow Measurements Using Cinedensitometry

Abstract

For functional diagnostic parameters of the human circulation, X-ray cinedensitometry is an important tool for quantitative measurement — alongside the dye dilution method, the thermodilution technique, the use of radioactive tracers, and recently the ultrasonic Doppler method. It enables quantities like transit time, blood flow, and blood flow velocity to be determined in selected areas of the circulatory system.
