Technetium 99m sestamibi in the assessment of myocardial salvage

R. J. Gibbons

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Myocardium at risk in patients with acute myocardial infarction can be assessed by use of the perfusion agent technetium Tc99m sestamibi. Studies with this agent have demonstrated significant myocardial salvage in patients treated with thrombolysis. Sequential imaging with technetium 99m sestamibi appears to offer advantages over other methods of assessing treatment benefit.
