Figure 1 – Evaluation of patient with suspected CAD. A) MPS showing small area of inferolateral ischemia. B and C) Time-activity curves in stress and rest phases, respectively, derived from the dynamic acquisition in CZT gamma camera. D, E, and F) Angiographic images showing 90% lesion in anterior descending artery, 75% lesion in circumflex artery and 50% in the middle third of right coronary artery, with 90% obstruction in posterior ventricular branch. G) Overall results of MBF quantification (in ml/min/g) and CFR in coronary territories (anterior descending artery, circumflex artery, and right coronary artery, respectively), followed by total values (last line). Reduced values of MBF and CFR are seen in all territories, which is compatible with the obstructive lesions found in coronary angiography. CAD: coronary artery disease; MPS: myocardial perfusion scintigraphy; MBF: myocardial blood flow; CFR: coronary flow reserve.
