Effects of left bundle branch block on myocardial FDG PET in patients without significant coronary artery stenoses.
UNLABELLED Cardiac PET studies in patients with left bundle branch block (LBBB) are few, and the results are conflicting. In particular, even if a reduced uptake of FDG is reported, confirmation in aExpand
