This paper represents a review of the recent literature on techniques to measure myocardial blood flow in man. A short discussion on flow meters in followed by a more detailed discussion of the radionuclide techniques used to measure myocardial blood flow. The radionuclide techniques are discussed in two groups: (1) qualitative measurement of blood flow using static images; and (2) quantitative measurements of blood flow using diffusible substances that actively enter the cell, radioactive labeled particles, and radioactive diffusible gases.
