Differentiation of regional perfusion and fatty acid uptake in zones of myocardial injury.

The relative myocardial distribution of 201Tl and modified fatty acid (123I-labelled 3-methyl-p-[iodo]-phenyl pentadecanoic acid, MFA) was determined in eight patients with unstable angina (UA) and six patients with acute myocardial infarction treated with reperfusion therapy within 4.1 h (MI). The results of radionuclide imaging were correlated with… CONTINUE READING
