Abstract

Tc-99m-MIBI is an isonrtrile derivative used for evaluation of myocardial perfusion in recent years. In this preliminary report, 7 patients with coronary artery disease are evaluated with Tc-99m-MlBl stress planar and sped studies. Good correlation with coronary angiography is observed in these cases. In view of inherent technical problems present with thallium 201, Tc-99m-MIBi is a good alternative in evaluation of myocardial perfusion.
