UNLABELLED This study was aimed at determining whether the (201)Tl SPECT abnormalities documented in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy are related to a local excess in wall stress, which might act against the diastolic perfusion of myocardium. METHODS We included 6 healthy volunteers and 7 patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy who underwent… CONTINUE READING
