The clinical estimation of acute myocardial infarct size with 99mTechnetium pyrophosphate scintigraphy.


We evaluated scintigraphic techniques in estimating infarct size. In 26 patients with acute transmural myocardial infarction, 99mTechnetium pyrophosphate (TcPYP) infarct scintigraphy, gated cardiac blood pool scintigraphy and 201-Thallium (201-Tl) perfusion scintigraphy were performed. Invasive hemodynamic measurements were obtained and serial venous blood… (More)
