We present static and dynamic techniques to visualize perfusion data and to relate perfusion data to morphologicimage data. In particular, we describe the integrated analysis of MRI myocardial perfusion data with CT coronaryangiographies depicting the morphology. We refined the Bulls-Eye Plot, a wide-spread and accepted analysis toolin cardiac diagnosis, to show aggregated information of perfusion data at rest and under stress. The correlationbetween regions of the myocard with reduced perfusion and 3d renditions of the coronary vessels can be exploredwithin a synchronized visualization of both. With our research, we attempt to improve the diagnosis of early stagecoronary artery disease.
