Myocardial perfusion imaging during chest pain: a useful clinical tool.

PMID:  8771308     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 72-year old man was injected with Tc 99m tetrofosmin during acute chest pain, in the presence of a nondiagnostic electrocardiogram (ECG). Myocardial perfusion imaging revealed a large anteroseptal defect. Subsequent catheterization confirmed left anterior descending artery disease. Acute imaging may be useful in the identification of critical disease in patients with chest pain and nondiagnostic ECG.
