Radionuclide absolute left ventricular volumes during upright exercise: validation in normal subjects by simultaneous hemodynamic measurements

Abstract

A nongeometric radionuclide technique for the determination of absolute left ventricular volumes was validated during exercise in nine normal subjects. Simultaneous reference stroke volume and cardiac output measurements were obtained by the Fick method. The reference left ventricular volumes were calculated by combining the Fick stroke volume and the… (More)
