UNLABELLED Revascularization of viable myocardial segments has been shown to improve left ventricular (LV) function and long-term prognosis; however, the surgical risk is comparatively higher in patients with a low ejection fraction (EF). We compared contrast-enhanced MRI with (18)F-FDG PET/(201)Tl SPECT for myocardial viability and prediction of early functional outcome in patients with chronic coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS Forty-one patients with chronic CAD and LV dysfunction… CONTINUE READING
