3 Dye-Staining Cardioscopy Using Fluorescein as a Biomarker for Evaluation of Myocardial Tissue Fluid Flow (MTFF) The subendocardial myocardial layer is most susceptible to ischemia. However, there is no clinically available imaging modality for selective and real-time evaluation of subendocardial myocardial microcirculation. Therefore, a fluorescent CS system which enables real-time and selective visualization of the subendocardial myocardial tissue fluid flow (MTFF) was developed by the present authors [9].
