  • 11C-acetate PET, preferred method of measuring MVO2 noninvasively
  • Accurate noninvasive imaging approaches of myocardial substrate metabolism - link between bench and bedside, improved patient management paradigms
  • Dilated, nonischemic cardiomyopathy
  • Fatty acid radiotracers - that are trapped
  • Hypertension/left ventricular hypertrophy
  • Myocardial metabolism in health and disease
  • Myocardial oxygen consumption - 15O-Oxygen
  • PET assessment of myocardial metabolism
  • Principle of using metabolic tracer - for myocardial viability assessment, viable tissue metabolically active
  • Radiotracers, allowing characterization of key metabolic pathways - uptake, storage, or oxidation linked to disease manifestations
