Abstract

Scintigraphy of the myocardium with 199Tl-chloride was performed in 59 patients. On the basis of the results of clinicoinstrumental investigation the diagnosis of chronic CHD was made in 36, that of acute myocardial infarction - in 7. The control group consisted of 16 persons without signs of coronary pathology. The sensitivity of scintigraphy with 199Tl-chloride in the detection of CHD was 92%, and this radionuclide was shown to be not inferior to 201Tl-chloride. 199Tl-chloride can be recommended for the diagnosis of CHD, cicatrical and necrotic myocardial lesions.
