[Epub ahead of print]BACKGROUND: We aimed to determine the optimal thallium 201 chloride (thallium-201) dose using a novel ultrafast cardiac gamma camera with cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT) solid-state semiconductor detectors (D-SPECT).METHODS AND RESULTS: The optimal thallium-201 dose for obtaining left ventricular (LV) myocardial counts was determined from a phantom study. Consecutive 292 patients underwent stress myocardial perfusion imaging with a thallium-201 injection. Read More
