Evaluation of a miniature CdTe detector for monitoring left ventricular function

Abstract

A miniature CdTe probe interfaced to a microcomputer was used to measure left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) in 25 patients. LVEF obtained with the CdTe module, in the beat-to-beat mode, or the integrated gated mode agreed well with LVEF obtained with a gamma camera (r=0.80; r=0.82 respectively). Similarly, LVEF by CdTe probe agreed with LVEF obtained… (More)
