Abstract

Forty-three patients (40 men and 3 woman, mean age 54 ± 9 years) with coronary artery disease underwent 99mTc methoxy isobutyl isonitrile (sestamibi) myocardial scintigraphy and coronary arteriography. Sestamibi uptake and wall thickening index (WTI) were quantitatively evaluated in each myocardial segment. Segments were divided into group 1 (normal coronary arteries, no. = 94), group 2 (coronary artery stenosis 50-99%, no. = 79), and group 3 (coronary artery stenosis 100%, no. = 42). Group 3 segments were subdivided into group 3A (with collaterals, no. = 18) and group 3B (without collaterals, no. = 24) segments. Both sestamibi uptake and WTI were significantly lower (p
