Abstract

The three-dimensional method of gated-tomography accurately assesses the ejection fraction. The underestimation determined by this method was lower in the study done with viable doses of dobutamine. The extent of perfusion defect had no deleterious effect on gated-tomography in the calculation of ejection fraction.
