Paper Abstract

Positron emission tomography (PET) is a technique which yields transverse tomographic images of the body reflecting the distribution of a positron-emitting radionuclide. When used in conjunction with certain radionuclides incorporated into molecules of physiological importance, PET is a promising method for the assessment of myocardial integrity through the mapping of biochemical processes.
