Importance of wall motion analysis in the diagnosis of left main disease using stress nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging

Abstract

We describe a case of a 54-year-old male who underwent exercise technetium-99m sestamibi myocardial perfusion imaging prior to his renal transplantation. With exercise, the patient's myocardial perfusion imaging did not show any transient or fixed myocardial perfusion abnormalities due to balanced ischemia. However, wall motion analysis showed a new global… (More)
