The accuracy of a CMR ASL method was evaluated in a canine model of myocardial ischemia, in comparison with PET in the same subject. There is very strong agreement in myocardial blood flow between CMR ASL and PET, despite that resting blood flow was underestimated by CMR ASL. Myocardial flow reserve was comparable between two imaging modalities.
