Background Accurate noninvasive determination of myocardial viability is of paramount importance for the clinical identification of patients who will benefit most from revascularization. The preserved metabolic activity in the myocardium, as studied with positron emission tomography (PET), has been considered a gold standard for this purpose. However, recent reports show that moderate hypoperfusion or stress-induced ischemia may represent reversible ischemia. The present study was undertaken to ...
