Abstract

Forty-three patients with ischemic heart disease were examined by 201-Thallium-scintigraphy at rest, left ventricular and coronary angiography to demonstrate sustained infarction. The results with the different methods were compared and good correlation was demonstrated. The correlation was less good with clinical and elctrocardiographic criteria of previous infarction. It is concluded that 201-Thallium-scintigraphy is a sensitive method for demonstration of myocardial infarction. The method should be reserved for patients in whom there are differential diagnostic difficulties.
