Background
Functional assessment of myocardial perfusion in computed tomography (CT) is a challenge.

Objective
To evaluate CT dynamic myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) using a wide-detector scanner.

Methods
Time to peak (TTP), peak enhancement (PE), upslope (US), and the area under the curve (AUC) were calculated in 12 pigs (256-slice multidetector CT scanner).

Results
The entire myocardium was covered by the scan volume. TTP was increased, and PE, US, and AUC were decreased in poststenotic myocardium.

Conclusion
CT MPI with complete coverage of the myocardium is feasible, providing evaluation of the physiological significance of coronary artery stenosis.
