Hence, preclinical detection of inducible myocardial ischemia is an important feature of noninvasive imaging in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. Additionally, in the setting of recent ischemia or chronic ischemia, regional myocardial function may become depressed, resulting in stunned (transient dysfunction) or hibernating (prolonged dysfunction) states without overt myocardial infarction. Because stunned or hibernating myocardium may normalize after revascularization of the involved regions, as opposed to regions with myocardial infarction, the distinction between these myocardial states is an important one (71–73).

An increase in systolic wall thickening greater than 2 mm during dobutamine infusion has been shown to be a reliable marker for post-revascularization improvement in function (90). Overall, dobutamine MR demonstrates high specificity with slightly lower sensitivity for assessment of contractile reserve, with a mean sensitivity of 73% (50% to 89%) and a mean specificity of 83% (70% to 95%) (83). Hypoperfused regions on resting first pass perfusion studies have also been used to assess myocardial viability.
