Abstract

Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy is one of the most important imaging techniques for the assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD) and for prognostic risk stratification of patients with CAD. However, its role in the setting of acute myocardial infarction and chronic dysfunction of hibernating myocardium, and in monitoring the efficacy of angioplasty and other therapeutic strategies is gaining importance. In this issue we briefly discuss the theoretical basis of myocardial perfusion scintigraphy and its major applications, starting from the detection of CAD up to the assessment of chronically dysfunctioning but still viable myocardium.
