To assess myocardial perfusion in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), N-13 ammonia positron computed tomography (PCT) was performed for 32 cases, and the PCT images were compared with those of single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) using thallium-201. Myocardial perfusion images were obtained with a whole-body multislice PCT device following the intravenous injection of 10 to 20 mCi N-13 ammonia at rest (32 cases) and during exercise (23 cases). Eleven cases underwent… CONTINUE READING
