(Right) Vertical lengthy axis F-18 FDG puppy viability indicates a wide apical myocardial infarction ſt that isn't metabolizing glucose ﬇. (Left) brief axis F-18 FDG puppy viability exhibits an enlarged correct ventricle ſt and an anterolateral perfusion illness ﬇. observe simply blood pool job st, that can characterize bad sufferer coaching or anterolateral nonviability. In hugely insulin-resistant sufferers, the guts won't soak up glucose regardless of viability.

(Right) VQ experiment exhibits anticipated uptake in the lungs on either anterior and posterior projections. unforeseen uptake in the kidneys bilaterally indicates both right-to-left shunt or unfastened pertechnetate ſt.
