Serial tomographic imaging with technetium-99m-sestamibi for the assessment of infarct-related arterial patency following reperfusion therapy.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of changes in the severity and extent of hypoperfusion on serial tomographic 99mTc-sestamibi images with patency of the infarct related artery during acute myocardial infarction. We studied 109 patients with acute myocardial infarction using tomographic 99mTc-sestamibi imaging acutely and at 18-48… (More)
