Extensive work has already been performed with regard to both planar and single photon emission computed (SPECT) technetium 99m sestamibi studies. Before widespread application of optimized acquisition and processing methods, clinical results between 99mTc sestamibi and thallium 201 were remarkably similar. It is anticipated that as techniques for 99mTc sestamibi planar and SPECT imaging become optimized, improvements in sensitivity and specificity for detection of coronary artery disease, over… CONTINUE READING
