Abstract

Nineteen patients with angina were recruited in this study for comparison of two 1-day protocols (stress-4 h rest and rest-4-h stress) and a 2-day protocol of technetium-99m tetrofosmin single-photon emission tomography (SPET). All of them underwent coronary angiography before or after the study. Exercise stress-rest study and rest-stress study were performed on two consecutive days. Delayed imaging was performed before the rest injection on the 2nd day. The stress study on the Ist day and rest study on the 2nd day were considered as a 2-day protocol. The I-day stress-rest protocol had a sensitivity of 100% (18/18) and anaccuracy of 100% (19/19) in diagnosing ischaemic heart disease. The 1-day rest-stress protocol had a sensitivity of 94.4% (17/18) and an accuracy of 94.7% (18/19), These differences were not statistically significant (P=0.5 for sensitivity and accuracy). There was also no statistically significant difference between the two protocols in the diagnosis of ischaemic heart disease in individual artery territories. For the left descending artery, sensitivity was 88.2% (15/17) vs 76.5% (13/17) (P=0.48) for the stress-rest and rest-stress studies respectively. For the left circumflex artery, sensitivity was 90% (9/10) vs 80% (8/10) (P=1) and specificity was 66.7% (6/9) vs 77.8% (7/9) (P=1) respectively. For the right coronary artery, the sensitivity was 100% (16/16)vs 94% (15/16) (P=1) respectively, while the specificity was 33.3% (1/3) in both studies. Three hundred and forty-two myocardial segments were analysed. The stress-rest and 2-day protocols showed no statistically significant difference in the overall identification of segments with reversible ischaemia (48/141 segments vs 48/141 segments) or in respect of individual artery territories, There was also no significant difference in the identification of reversible ischaemic segments between the rest-stress and 2-day protocols (48/141 segments vs 34/135 segments, P=0.14), Abdominal activity was seen in 36 studies and interpretation was affected in five of them. Five patients with 24-h delayed images were evaluated and 24 segments with washout were identified. It is concluded that Tc-99m-tetrofosmin is a valuable new tracer in the investigation of ischaemic heart disease. The 1-day stress-rest protocol is as good as the 1-day rest-stress protocol in diagnosing coronary heart disease. The 1-day protocols and the 2-day protocol display no difference in identifying segments with reversible ischaemia.
