This report is a prospective study of 33 male patients who underwent both contrast ventriculography (CVG) and radionuclide ventriculography (RVG) within a 24-hour period. Expert, blinded observers graded the left ventricle's regional wall motion (RWM) in the left anterior descending (LAD), left circumflex (LCx), and posterior descending arterial (PDA) distributions on right anterior oblique (RAO), and left anterior oblique (LAO) CVGs, and on anterior (ANT), LAO, 70 degrees left anterior oblique (LAO70), and left posterior oblique (LPO) RVGs. When statistically compared with CVG RWM standard data, RVG studies composed of LAO and LPO views were equal to the RVG studies composed of ANT, LAO, and LAO70 views in assessment of the LAD and LCx distributions. The RVG with LAO and LPO views was superior to the RVG with ANT, LAO, LAO70 in the detection of the posterior descending artery RWM. The authors conclude that accurate assessment of RWM is efficiently performed with the RVG composed of LAO and LPO views.
