BACKGROUND We compared estimates of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) assessed by gated single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), using both technetium-99m sestamibi and thallium-201, with those obtained by first-pass radionuclide angiography (FPRNA) in patients with a broad spectrum of LVEF and perfusion abnormalities. METHODS Sixty-three patients were randomly selected to undergo a dual isotope gated SPECT study (rest Tl-201 followed by adenosine Tc-99m sestamibi… CONTINUE READING
