Myocardial imaging was performed after intravenous injection of thallium-201 at rest in 50 patients with suspected coronary artery disease and the results were compared with electrocardiographic, ventriculographic and coronary arteriographic findings. The thallium-201 myocardial images were of good quality and compared favorably with images previously obtained with intracoronary particle injection. Myocardial to background ratios averaged 2:1, a considerable improvement over ratios reported… CONTINUE READING
