Title: Radionuclide methods for evaluating the results of thrombolytic therapy

Abstract

In summary, a variety of nuclear techniques may be used to investigate the effects of thrombolytic therapy and myocardial reperfusion. Assessments of global and regional ventricular function, myocardial perfusion, and metabolic integrity are available and appear to add substantially to conventional assessment. Timing of studies appears to be critical. Complementary data can be obtained in both the acute and convalescent phase of myocardial infarction. 49 references.
