During exercise, regions of the heart supplied by partially occluded arteries are deprived of blood, a condition that may foster angina pectoris. With rest, healthy blood flow to the affected areas is restored. Radionuclide agents (e.g., thallium-201 or sestamibi) can be used to demonstrate regions of the coronary circulation where this effect occurs, and aid in the diagnosis and management of ischemic heart disease.
