Abstract

Rest-redistribution thallium-301 imaging is widely used to assess recoveryof regional systolic dysfunction in patients with chronic coronary artery disease. In several studies, this technique has demonstrated very high sensitivity but reduced specificity, as reported in general for radionuclide imaging. In clinical terms, this implicates that many dysfunctional territories will not recover after revascularization despite a substantial amount oftracer uptake. Yet, the amount of tracer uptake in a given myocardial segment, although not perfect, remains the best indicator for predicting reversible dysfunction. In fact, the occurrence of redistribution after rest injection is not very common and it does not substantially contribute to the accuracy of the test. However, it is still undetermined whether the presence of redistribution is relevant for prognostic implications.
