The role of sestamibi scintigraphy in the radioisotopic assessment of myocardial viability.

Abstract

The relationship between sestamibi uptake as a marker of myocardial viability and postrevascularization function recovery is still to be defined. We studied 14 patients (13 males, 1 female, mean age 55 +/- 7 yr, range 35 to 64 yr) with sestamibi scintigraphy, quantitative coronary angiography and two-dimensional echocardiography. Sestamibi uptake was… (More)
