Assessment of left ventricular diastolic function by gated single-photon emission tomography: comparison with Doppler echocardiography


Gated single-photon emission tomography (SPET) is not yet an established procedure for the evaluation of left ventricular (LV) diastolic function. This study examined diastolic function derived from gated SPET in comparison with an established diagnostic tool, Doppler echocardiography. We examined 37 consecutive patients with normal sinus rhythm who… (More)
