Abstract

A crossover study to examine the potential of In111 antimyosin Fab fragment to detect fresh myocardial infarcts in comparison with Tc99m pyrophosphate is reported. In 27 cases indium antimyosin correctly diagnosed 19 patients with infarcts and 4 true negatives. There were also 2 false positive and 2 false negative scintigrams. Tc99m pyrophosphate detected 21 infarcts and 6 true negatives correctly.
