  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

In order to evaluate myocardial damage in a patient with myocarditis, rest thallium-201 myocardial single photon emisson computed tomography (SPECT) was performed in 15 patients with myocarditis. For qualita-tive and semiquantitative analysis, Bull's eye functional maps were made up with SPECT images. In the func-tional map, the abnormal area, where Tl uptake is less than mean-2SD of the Tl uptake of normal subjects, is generally distributed in the myocarditis group.But focal and sequential abnormal areas were recognized more often in the clinically severe cases.
