Myocardial efﬁciency measured by C-acetate positron emission tomography (PET) has successfully been used in clinical research to quantify mechanoenergetic coupling. The objective of this study was to establish the repeatability of myocardial external efﬁciency (MEE) and work metabolic index (WMI) by non-invasive concepts. Methods and Results. Ten healthy volunteers (63 ± 4 years) were examined twice, one week apart, using C-acetate PET, cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR), and echocardiog- raphy. Myocardial oxygen consumption from PET was combined with stroke work
