The frequency of false positive results obtained from the inferior myocardial region using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion scintigraphy is significantly higher than that obtained from other regions. Several methods, such as prone-position imaging, have been proposed to overcome this diagnostic problem. The aim of the present study was to compare the results of Tc-99m-sestamibi gated SPECT and Tl-201 prone SPECT in the differentiation of inferior wall… CONTINUE READING
