Abstract

This study compared the results of planar and single-photon emission computed tomographic (SPECT) imaging with tetrofosmin with those of Tl-201 and coronary angiography. In three normal volunteers the images were normal by both Tl-201 and tetrofosmin (planar and SPECT). In 23 patients with coronary artery disease, the images were abnormal in 20 patients by SPECT tetrofosmin, in 19 by planar tetrofosmin, in 20 by SPECT thallium, and in 18 by planar thallium (difference not significant). Both planar and SPECT images were divided into five segments per patient. There were 58 perfusion defects by SPECT tetrofosmin, 50 by planar tetrofosmin (difference not significant), 47 by SPECT thallium, and42 by planar thallium (difference not significant). Perfusion defectswere reversible in 47 segments (36%) by SPECT tetrofosmin, 35 (27%) by planar tetrofosmin, 31 (24%) by SPECT thallium (p < 0.05 vs SPECT tetrofosmin), and 31 (24%) by planar thallium (difference not significant). Among the 23 patients with coronary artery disease, 19 underwent coronary angiography. In these patients there were 32 diseased coronaryarteries. Perfusion defects were present in 21 territories (66%) by SPECT tetrofosmin, 19 (59%) by planar tetrofosmin, 20 (63%) by SPECT thallium, and 18 (56%) by planar thallium. There was agreement between thallium and tetrofosmin in 108 of 130 segments (kappa statistics = 0.69 +/- 0.06). The images, especially with SPECT, are better with tetrofosmin than with Tl-201. Thus myocardial imaging with tetrofosmin provides results that are at least as good as those of Tl-201. Slightly more abnormal segments and more reversible defects are detected by tetrofosmin than by thallium imaging, especially with SPECT imaging.
