Background A novel technology has been developed for ultrafast (UF) singlephoton emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging by employing a pin-hole collimation design and multiple cadmium zinc telluride crystal arrays. The purpose of this study was to compare myocardial perfusion imaging obtained by UF-SPECT with standard (S) SPECT in patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease. Methods and Results A total of 34 patients underwent single-day TcTetrofosmin… CONTINUE READING
