Myocardial imaging with Cc-99m pyrophosphate in patients on adriamycin treatment for neoplasia.

Abstract

Technetium-99m pyrophosphate was utilized for myocardial imaging in 15 patients on adriamycin treatment for neoplasia. We have noted abnormal accumulation of the pyrophosphate in several patients, particularly in those in whom the so-called poor-risk factors were operative, namely prior radiation, cyclophosphamide therapy, and ischemic heart disease.
