Evaluation of myocardial perfusion with tracers such as thallium and rubidium is based on the assumption that tissue tracer content is proportional to flow. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between flow and tissue tracer content of 201Tl and 83Rb in the isolated perfused rabbit heart. 83Rb (86-day half-life), an isotope that is not used clinically, was used as a subsitute for 82Rb (76-s half-life) to improve the accuracy and precision of data acquisition. The multiple… CONTINUE READING
