UNLABELLED This study evaluated the incremental prognostic value of 201TI reinjection imaging over clinical, exercise and thallium stress-redistribution data in patients with previous myocardial infarction and left ventricular dysfunction. METHODS Thallium-201 reinjection after stress-redistribution SPECT was performed in 104 consecutive patients with a first Q-wave myocardial infarction (> 8 wk) and left ventricular ejection fraction < or = 40%. Follow-up data (mean 22 mo) were available for… CONTINUE READING
