Notes:

Ischemia of the inferior myocardial wall is generally caused by occlusion of the posterior descending coronary artery (often the distal portion of the right coronary) or a distal part of the left circumflex coronary artery branch. Long axis views show the posterior wall while the apical two-chamber and short axis views are best at defining the inferior myocardial wall segments. One of the most useful views for regional ischemia is the short axis of the left ventricular myocardium, where multiple segments with distinct coronary supplies can be simultaneously compared.
