A method for computer analysis of thallium-201 scintigrams is described, in which the left-ventricular activity is measured along radii constructed from the center of the left ventricle (LV) to each point on the LV circumference. Data are then displayed graphically as a "circumferential profile" of normalized activity against radial location. Thallium(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)
SUMMARY 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 scin-tigraphic segments were highly specific(More)
In a study comparing indium-111 platelet scintigraphy and two-dimensional echocardiography as methods of identifying left ventricular thrombi, the results obtained with both techniques were verified at surgery or autopsy in 53 patients--34 with left ventricular aneurysms, and 19 with mitral-valve disease. Left ventricular thrombi were found at surgery or(More)
