Abstract

Resting 99mTc-MIBI cardiac imaging may be poorly accurate in identifying the presence of viable myocardium in patients with chronic coronary artery disease (CAD). In this study, we directly compared the results of resting 99mTc-MIBI SPECT with initial (1 hr) and delayed (5 hrs) images with those of 99mTc-MIBI SPECT after nitroglycerine (NTG) administration in 31 patients with chronic CAD. All patients also underwent rest-redistribution thallium-201 ( 201Tl) SPECT. In 8 patients, echocardiography was performed before and after coronary revascularization (Rev). Of 682 myocardial segments, 197 showed a marked reduction (
