Figure 12: Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography – cardiac viability study:The figure shows two rows of images – the top row has the MIBI study while the bottom row shows the fluorodeoxyglucose(FDG) uptake. The corresponding images show an increased FDG uptake signifying the viability of the myocardium even in areas of decreased perfusion (as seen on the MIBI images) (Image Courtesy: Nuclear Medicine, CMC Vellore).
