Parametric digital coronary arteriograms under baseline (left) and hyperemic (right) conditions are depicted for a normal right coronary artery in the RAO projection. 24 31, 32). This problem has lead to interest in using the digital arteriogram to measure coronary flow or flow reserve directly. Much recent work is based upon the film-based videodensitometric approaches of Rutishauser et al. and Smith et al. who used selective and aortic root injections to determine absolute coronary blood flow (33-36).

Clearly, however, even with maximal stimulation, flow reserve, as a physiological parameter, has significant limitations which must be considered during individual coronary artery assessment. It is hoped that radiographic methods capable of measuring absolute coronary flow during routine catheterization may be developed. This would prove useful for differentiating epicardial arterial stenosis from the many other causes of abnormal flow reserve. Within these limitations, our laboratory has found the parametric imaging approach to measuring flow reserve helpful for the assessment of: individual coronary artery disease severity, the efficacy of coronary angioplasty and bypass surgery, and ischemia in patients without coronary artery disease.
