Abstract

The independent effect of myocardial wall thickness and myocardial perfusion pressure on integrated backscatter was investigated through experiments wherein integrated backscatter of normally perfused myocardial tissue was measured while changes in wall thickness during the cardiac cycle were reduced to a minimum. Results of the experiments show that integrated backscatter is mainly determined by myocardial wall thickness if only wall thickness and perfusion pressure are involved.
