[99mTc]-pyrophosphate (PYP) and [201Tl]-chloride dual isotope single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is now available to detect the site and extent of acute myocardial infarction. In inflammatory myocardial disease, [99mTc]PYP makes hot image on damaged area. We performed dual isotope SPECT of [99mTc]PYP and [201Tl]Cl in two patients with acute… CONTINUE READING
