19 June 1979 Computerized Positron Emission Tomography (PET) For The Assessment Of Myocardial Integrity
Author Affiliations +
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.
