Temporal Changes in Sequential Quantitative Thallium-201 Imaging Following Myocardial Infarction in Dogs: Comparison of Four and Twenty-Four Hour Infarct Images


Thallium-201 ((201)T1) myocardial perfusion imaging allows definition of zones of myocardial infarction and ischemia. The temporal changes in sequential quantitative (201)T1 infarct imaging was studied 4 and 24 hours in dogs subjected to closed-chest anterior wall myocardial infarction. A temporal decrease in (201)T1 imaged infarct areas was noted in 10 of… (More)
