This clinical study evaluated the accuracy of planar myocardial scintigraphy with antimyosin monoclonal antibodies radiolabeled with indium-111 (AMA-Fab) in the detection and localization of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Fifty-seven patients admitted for suspected AMI were studied; 17 patients underwent thrombolytic therapy with intravenous… CONTINUE READING
