Planar Myocardial Perfusion Imaging Fig 1496 to Fig 1498

Breast attenuation is a serious problem with planar myocardial perfusion imaging. This is in marked contrast to SPECT imaging. In planar imaging only three projection images are acquired. Breast attenuation defects may make images that are affected uninterpretable thus, interpretation is then limited to the one or two remaining images, thereby seriously limiting the diagnostic yield of planar myocardial perfusion imaging (2).
