With the premium system, physicians at Lancaster General Health/Penn Medicine are able to efficiently image a wide variety of patients and are investigating the implementation of CT myocardial perfusion
to improve cardiac patient care.
These features were helpful in our research study to develop a workflow that allowed for outpatient CT myocardial perfusion
studies to be performed safely and efficiently at Lancaster General Health/Penn Medicine.
Objective: To determine the role of visual quantification of Tc-99m MIBI myocardial perfusion
SPECT in left bundle branch block as compared to coronary angiography findings.
We evaluated the myocardial perfusion
using myocardial blush grade and resolution of ST-segment elevation.
SPECT radioisotopes chemical form of thallous chloride has been the principle tracer used in myocardial perfusion
To improve cardiac diagnoses with simplified dose reduction technology, Toshiba has received FDA clearance of its industry-exclusive CT Myocardial Perfusion
During the past three decades, the most rapidly growing areas of nuclear cardiology have been stress myocardial perfusion
imaging single photon emission computed tomography (MPI SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) for the diagnosis and prognosis of patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD).
CMR myocardial perfusion
and viability imaging has become a useful approach to evaluate coronary artery disease.
We investigated whether daily consumption of pomegranate juice for 3 months would affect myocardial perfusion
in 45 patients who had CHD and myocardial ischemia in a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study.
Objective: To ascertain the hard event rate in local population with normal myocardial perfusion
Nuclear myocardial perfusion
scan suggested a small inferolateral infarct with some reversible ischemia.
The myocardial perfusion
imaging tests - also known as stress tests - provides valuable information about blood flow within the muscle of the heart and is used in the diagnosis of a range of heart problems, including 1myocardial ischaemia (angina) and myocardial infarction (heart attack).
