Regional myocardial glucose utilization was measured with [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) and positron emission tomography in normal and postischemic tissue after 3 h of intracoronary balloon occlusion in closed-chest chronically instrumented anesthetized dogs. Estimates of glucose metabolic rates were made using the Sokoloff model, assuming the lumped constant to be unchanged in reperfused tissue. Myocardial sectors were classified as normal, reversibly injured, or infarct containing based on… CONTINUE READING
