OBJECTIVE This study assessed whether variations in count density, reconstruction filtering parameters and the short-axis orientation selected for reconstructions of myocardial short-axis slices significantly influenced the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) calculated from a gated myocardial perfusion SPECT study. METHODS The Cedars-Sinai quantitative gated SPECT software package was used to estimate the LVEF from gated 99mTc-sestamibi and 201TI gated SPECT studies in 20 patients… CONTINUE READING
