Abstract

The case of a 62-year-old man with an acute myocardial infarction detected by planar Tc-99m PYP imaging is presented. The use of SPECT imaging provided more information with regard to infarct localization by demonstrating uptake by the septum, a finding not apparent on the conventional planar images.
