UNLABELLED The myocardial uptake kinetics of 14(R,S)-[18F]fluoro-6-thia-heptadecanoic acid (FTHA) were evaluated in humans with PET. The relationship between human myocardial FTHA uptake kinetics and the rate-pressure product (RPP) as an index of myocardial oxygen consumption was investigated in seven normal subjects under fasting conditions. METHODS Seven studies were performed at rest and under submaximal continuous supine bicycle exercise with elevated RPP. An additional five studies were… CONTINUE READING
