BACKGROUND The aim of the work was a scintigraphic evaluation of regional blood supply of thigh and calf muscles using 99mTc-MIBI as a radiopharmaceutical, in early stages of atherosclerosis revealed during ultrasonographic examination of lower limbs, in patients without typical clinical symptoms of chronic ischaemia of lower limbs and with preserved normal Doppler spectrum of blood flow. Moreover, basic relations between early signs of lower limb atherosclerosis and abnormal myocardial… CONTINUE READING
