GONZALEZ E, Patricio et al. Fluorodexyglucose SPECT in acute myocardial infarction: case report. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2000, vol.128, n.9, pp. 1019-1023. ISSN 0034-9887. doi: 10.4067/S0034-98872000000900010.
We report a 50-year-old woman with a recent myocardial infarction in whom a myocardial perfusion single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with Thallium201201Tl SPECT to study viability and a FDG-SPECT with a dual head high-energy collimator camera were done. Images, acquired 45 min after injection, were analyzed visually. In anterior and medial apical sectors, discordance between flux and metabolism, considered a classical mismatch, was observed. Echocardiographic hypokinesia disappeared three month after revascularization (Rev Méd Chile 2000; 128: 1019-23).
