The experimental design in examination of acute myocardial infarctions should be valid in terms of flow, perfusion and re-flow after intervention. The contrast agents concentration in experimental studies can be measured by microdialysis. We have assessed the usefulness of different extracellular and blood pool contrast agents for visualization of the area at risk in coronary artery occlusions. The double contrast technique, where Dy-DTPA-BMA was combined with Gd-DTPA-BMA yielded a superior infarct visualization. Blood pool agents for example NC100/150 injection is also promising in first path myocardial perfusion imaging.
