UNLABELLED Gated blood pool SPECT (GBPS) is an alternative to planar radionuclide ventriculography (PRNV) and offers potential advantages. The aim of this study was to compare GBPS, multi-row detector spiral computed tomography (MDCT), and PRNV for the determination of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and left ventricular volumes (LV) in subjects with atypical chest pain. METHOD Twenty-three consecutive patients (14 men, 9 women; mean age 56.2 +/- 9.5 years) referred for MDCT for… CONTINUE READING
