Abstract 99mTc-TBI myocardial perfusion imaging has been studied in 7 normal subjects and 24 patients with coronary artery disease. Scintigraphic data revealed that 99mTc-TBI myocardial perfusion imaging is more sensitive than ECG in detecting myocardial infarction. In comparing 99mTc-TBI imaging with contrast angiography, its' sensitivity for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease was 91.7%.
