Abstract

Nuclear cardiology supports the cardiolgosits' work in three important diagnostic fields: 1) the function and wall motion abnormalities of the heart; 2) the cardiac muscle perfusion-ischaemia, cardiac muscle viability; 3) the cardiac muscle neuronal imaging examinations. The increasingly better spatial resolution of multislice spiral CT together with molecular imaging systems (PET-CT and SPECT-CT) provide a considerable improvement in non-invasive cardiology, enabling to image both the detailed structure of coronary artery and myocardial cell metabolism. The application of multimodality imaging may reduce the disadvantages of the earlier separately used structural and metabolic examinations, increasing thus the specificity and sensitivity of the examinations. Although CT coronarography separates the functionally relevant stenoses, it is not suitable for the detection of ischaemia. Multimodality imaging makes fundamental information on myocardial circulation and metabolism available for a larger group of cardiologists. It gives the possibility to elaborate more appropriate therapeutic plans, as well as to monitor therapeutic efficiency. The multimodality instrumentation is already accessible in a number of domestic nuclear medicine workplaces, and it is expected to be further developed.
