Abstract

21 patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome were investigated through radionuclide imaging and body surface mapping. Ventricular preexcitation was localized by display of identical phase ventricular regions (phase display). In 79% of the cases radioisotope and body surface mapping methods have identical results for the site of preexcitation. In two patients of the control group (10 patients with Lown- Ganong-Levine (LGL) syndrome), false positive outside-of septum ventricular preexcitation was detected, i.e. an 80% specificity. It is concluded that phase display might be a suitable method in the diagnosis of WPW syndrome. The sensitivity of this method can be improved using several views.
