BACKGROUND A method has been described for improving myocardial visibility on 99mTc-labeled sestamibi gated tomograms, even in the presence of severe hypoperfusion. It is essential to verify that images transformed in this manner truly depict the myocardium and do not contain image artifacts. This is especially important if transformed images are to be used to aid in the discernment of regional wall-motion abnormalities. METHODS AND RESULTS All radially detected maximum counts were mapped… CONTINUE READING
