Limited performance of quantitative assessment of myocardial function by thallium-201 gated myocardial single-photon emission tomography


We investigated the reproducibility between thallium-201 and technetium-99m methoxyisobutylisonitrile (MIBI) gated single-photon emission tomography (SPET) for the assessment of indices of myocardial function such as end-diastolic and end-systolic volume (EDV, ESV), ejection fraction (EF) and wall motion. Rest 201Tl (111 MBq) gated SPET was sequentially… (More)
