Myocardial microcirculation perfusion dysfunction plays an important role in assessment cardiac disease especially diabetes and hypertension because of their high incidence in the world. We preliminarily investigated the difference of myocardial micro-vascular perfusion between patients with diabetes/hypertension and normal volunteers with IVIM (0, 20, 50, 80, 120, 150, 200, 300, 500 s/mm2) diffusion weighted imaging. We found that Fast ADC values in patients were significant lower than in healthy volunteers. We concluded that IVIM CMR could quantitatively and noninvasively evaluate perfusion status in patients with diabetes and/or hypertension.
