BACKGROUND We compared estimates of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) assessed by gated single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), using both technetium-99m sestamibi and thallium-201, with those obtained by first-pass radionuclide angiography (FPRNA) in patients with a broad spectrum of LVEF and perfusion abnormalities. METHODS(More)
Paired scintigraphic and cine CT studies were performed on 29 patients to assess the accuracy of three scintigraphic methods currently available for determination of right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF). Following a bolus injection of 30 mCi f mTcjpertechnetate, a serial mode acquisition of the first transit through the heart was recorded. Processing(More)
