Optimal metabolic conditions during fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose imaging; a comparative study using different protocols

Abstract

Positron emission tomography (PET) with fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) can identify viable myocardium in patients with coronary artery disease. Recently, FDG imaging with single-photon emission tomography (SPET) and 511-keV collimators has been described. To obtain optimal image quality in all patients, cardiac FDG studies should be performed during… (More)
