Which imaging technique for myocardial hibernation and viability?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Despite technological advances in cardiac diagnosis, clinical assessments of myocardial viability and the medical decisions about how to treat and preserve viable dysfunctioning myocardium are still difficult tasks. Thallium-201 imaging, sestamibi, positron emission tomography, and stress echocardiography have all been investigated for their value in this application.
