BACKGROUND Previous assessments of myocardial viability using positron emission tomography (PET) relied on demonstration of glucose metabolism in hypoperfused asynergic segments using the glucose analogue [18F]2-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose (FDG). Recently, it was shown that myocardial viability could be assessed by calculating the water-perfusable tissue index (PTI) for the asynergic region. PTI represents the proportion of the myocardium that is capable of rapid transsarcolemmal exchange of water… CONTINUE READING
