The sensitivity of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) using thallium-201 injected both at rest and during peak exercise was compared to simultaneously recorded 12 lead electrocardiography (ECG) for the detection of transient ischemia in 20 normal subjects and 63 patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). No significant perfusion defects or ECG changes(More)
Thallium-201 myocardial perfusion images were obtained from 13 healthy adults after tracer administration both at rest and at maximal stress. On the rest-injected scan, tracer was seen in left ventricular myocardium, liver, and spleen. In two subjects with resting tachycardia, the right ventricular myocardium was slightly visualized after tracer injection(More)
To determine the usefulness of thallium-201 scintigraphy for identifying left main coronary artery disease, the results of scintigraphy at rest and during exercise were compared in 24 patients with 50 percent or greater narrowing of the left main coronary artery and 80 patients with 50 percent or greater narrowing of one or more of the major coronary(More)
Global ventricular function was evaluated by both multiple gated cardiac blood pool scans (MUGA) and contrast ventriculograms in a group of 17 patients with suspected coronary artery disease. The contrast ventriculograms were analyzed frame by frame to generate a volume versus time curve for each patient, while the tracer data were analyzed by two methods:(More)
The appearance of the right ventricular myocardium on thallium 201 myocardial perfusion images was evaluated in patients with chronic pulmonary hypertension and compared to patients without pulmonary hypertension. Four groups of patients were studied: 1) eight normals, 2) five patients with angiographically documented coronary artery disease and normal(More)
The value of stress thallium-201 scintigraphy for detecting individual coronary arterial stenoses was analyzed in 141 patients with angiographically proved coronary artery disease, 101 with and 40 without a previous myocardial infarction. In patients without infarction, the sensitivity for detecting greater than 50 percent narrowing in the left anterior(More)
QCD coherence effects are studied based on measurements of correlations of particles with either restricted transverse momenta, pT < p cut T , where pT is defined with respect to the thrust axis, or restricted absolute momenta, p ≡ |p| < p , using about four million hadronic Z decays recorded at LEP with the OPAL detector. The correlations are analyzed in(More)
This study was done to determine the value of thallium-201 myocardial scintigraphic imaging (MSI) for identifying disease in the individual coronary arteries. Segmental analysis of rest and stress MSI was performed in 133 patients with arteriographically proved coronary artery disease (CAD). Certain scintigraphic segments were highly specific (97-100%) for(More)
