UNLABELLED To study the sensitivity of two fatty acid tracers to changes in beta-oxidation, the myocardial retention kinetics of 125I-iodine-15-(p-iodophenyl)-3(R,S)-methylpentadecanoic acid (BMIPP) and 14-18F-fluoro-6-thia-heptadecanoic acid (FTHA) were compared in states of oxygen deprivation due to ischemia and hypoxia. METHODS Nineteen swine were… CONTINUE READING
