Abstract english

Adenosine is widely used as a vasodilator agent in myocardial perfusion imaging. Caffeine inhibits the effect, but the time of caffeine abstinence needed is under discussion and varies from 12 to 24 h. Therefore, our aim was to examine whether the time of caffeine abstinence affects the hyperaemic response using quantification of coronary sinus flow (CS F) with cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) during adenosine infusion.
