Regional concordance and discordance between rest thallium 201 and sestamibi imaging for assessing tissue viability: comparison with postrevascularization functional recovery.


BACKGROUND Whether the combined analysis of rest 201Tl and sestamibi uptake provides additional information regarding myocardial viability in patients with coronary artery disease is still to be investigated. METHODS AND RESULTS To this aim we studied 22 patients with previous myocardial infarction and regional ventricular dysfunction by quantitative rest… (More)
