Myocardial perfusion throughout a complete cardiac cycle. Phase cycles 1.0 and 2.0 correspond to systole. Observe the slow filling of the cardiac chamber following systole compared to the rapid volume ejection just prior to systole at phase-points 1.0 and 2.0. Compare to raw projection images of contrast dye perfusion, reconstructed with High-Efficiency CT from 3 bi-plane projections.
