Title:
Prediction of Left Ventricular Functional Recovery by Dobutamine Echocardiography, F-18 Deoxyglucose or textsuperscript99mTc Sestamibi Nuclear Imaging in Patients with Chronic Myocardial Infarction 
Abstract:
Background: Currently, several modalities are available to predict viability, however, studies comparing various modalities validated by functional recovery after revascularization are scarce. This study analyzed the relative merits of low-dose dobutamine echocardiography, F-18 deoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) and 99mTc sestamibi single-photon emission computed tomography to predict functional recovery after revascularization in patients with chronic myocardial infarction.
