PMID:  3451767     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Thallium 201 (Tl-201) as a marker of regional tissue perfusion is described as a diagnostic aid in a case of exercise-induced vasospastic disease affecting the lower leg of a physically active young adult male who had no evidence of atherosclerotic disease. The success and failure of various therapeutic attempts made in behalf of this patient have been monitored by repeated Tl-201 administrations. Exercise-associated ischemia in tissues other than the myocardium can be investigated with Tl-201.
