Abstract

A modeling procedure, employing multiple 99mTc-PYP myocardial scintigrams, was applied to acute inferoposterior myocardial infarcts in 12 dogs. Four modeling schemes were developed, and the model volume predictions were correlated with morphometrically determined infarct masses. Correlation values ranged from r = 0.66 (p < 0.02) to r = 0.80 (p < 0.005), suggesting that the method may enable noninvasive quantitative sizing of acute inferoposterior myocardial infarcts.
