Automatic quantification of right ventricular volumes and right ventricular ejection fraction with gated blood pool SPECT: Comparison of 8- and 16-frame gated blood pool SPECT with first-pass radionuclide angiography.

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare 8- and 16-frame gated blood pool single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) (GBPS) for the determination of right ventricular ejection fraction (RVEF) and right ventricular (RV) volumes in subjects who underwent two consecutive GBPS studies. METHODS AND RESULTS In this study 65 consecutive patients… CONTINUE READING
