The utility of stress-redistribution thallium-201 myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in patients with a prior single myocardial infarction was studied in 66 patients who were tested by both SPECT and coronary angiography. SPECT was quantified by comparing the patients' circumferential count profiles to a previously established normal data base and by plotting the results onto a polar coordinate map that localized defects to the 3 major coronary artery… CONTINUE READING
