Abstract

Aim Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) is an effective tool for early diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD) in type II diabetes mellitus (DM). The purpose of this study was to review the comparative findings of Tc-99m MIBI and Tl-201 MPS in defining normal and abnormal myocardial segments, type and extent of the perfusion defects with reference to coronary angiography findings in diabetic patients.
