Abstract

The application of ECG gated reconstruction to myocardial images obtained by the use of human albumin microspheres is reported, and a reconstruction strategy suitable for the study of transients is defined. The reconstruction technique, based on list mode acquisition, is currently in use in research applications for ECG gated blood pool imaging, and was demonstrated to be suitable to monitor changes in left ventricular contractility. The use of microspheres ensures a more correct evaluation of coronary flow distribution with respect to 201-T1, and gated reconstruction appears to be feasible due to the higher activity. It is therefore possible to have simultaneous information on coronary blood flow distribution and myocardial contractility. The technique appears to be promising from the results in patients with different clinical situations.
