Abstract

The aim of this study was to correlate lung thallium-201 uptake on exercise with (TI)-T-201 single-photon emission tomography (SPET) myocardial perfusion im: aging, rest and exercise equilibrium radionuclide angiographic andcoronary angiographic findings in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) using a sample, reproducible lung/heart (L/H) ratio that would be easy to use in clinical practice. L/H ratio was defined on the anterior planar image obtained during exercise (TI)-T-201 SPET; acquisition as the mean counts per pixel in an entire right lung field region of interest divided by the mean counts per pixel in the hottest myocardial wall region of interest. We studied 103 patients. Fifty-nine patients (group I) with <5% likelihood of CAD were used as a reference group. In 44 CAD patients (group II), L/H ratio was compared with Tl-201 SPET, radionuclide angiographic and coronary angiographic variables. The group I L/H ratio of 0.35+/-0.05 (mean +/-1 SD)was significantly lower (P<0.001) than the group II L/H ratio of 0.45+/-0.10. An WH ratio >0.45 (mean + 2 SD in group I) was considered abnormal. In group II, WH ratio showed a significant correlation with stress and rest Tl-201 perfusion defect size (r = 0.39 and r = 0.42, P<0.01, respectively), but not with extent of ischaemic myocardium. The mean WH ratio was 0.41+/-0.10 in patients with one; vessel disease (n = 15), 0.46+/-0.08 in those withtwo-vessel disease (n = 17) and 0.47+/-0.12 in those with three-vessel disease (n = 12), but no significant difference was found between the three subgroups. L/H ratio showed a significant inverse relation with rest and exercise left ventricular ejection fraction (r = -0.37 and r = -0.50, P<0.05 and P<0.001, respectively). Using stepwise multiple regression analysis, exercise left Ventricular ejection fraction and previous history of hypertension were the sole two variables independently predictive of the L/H ratio. Inconclusion, although lung thallium uptake is usually found to correlate with extent and severity of CAD, increased L/H ratio should primarily be considered as a marker of exercise-induced left ventricular systolic and perhaps diastolic dysfunction, probably independent of the underlying cardiac disease.
