Perfusion vector-a new method to quantify myocardial perfusion scintigraphy images: a simulation study with validation in patients.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The interpretation of myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) largely relies on visual assessment by the physician of the localization and extent of a perfusion defect. The aim of this study was to introduce the concept of the perfusion vector as a new objective quantitative method for further assisting the visual interpretation and to test the concept using simulated MPS images as well as patients.
