Cardiac PET-CT

for viability

  • In a post myocardial infarction setting, especially in individuals with low ejection fraction, knowing if the infarct is viable
  • It has been demonstrated that only subjects who show a significant viable myocardial viability, show an improvement in ejection fraction post re-vascularisation
