Abstract

Nitrate administration has been proposed to enhance the detection of myocardial viability when performing myocardial perfusion imaging. In this study, we aimed to compare Tl-201 exercise-rest-reinjection protocol with rest isosorbide dinitrate (ISDN)-Tc99m MIBI study in the same population examined for the myocardial viability.
