The Tc shortage I just got and email that has maped out the Tc shortage for April 2010 and March 2010. Can any oune guide to a good article that gives a Thallium comartison to Sestamibi or Myoview our Rads that read Nuclear stress test would be willing to switch to thallium but I need to give them proof that the E.F. and wall mortion is just as good can anyone shed some light on this.

I was able to put together a good Thallium gating protocol utilizing the info gained from these articles. The main idea is to go back to 8 frame gating to allow more counts per frame, and to increase the time per frame to 30-35 seconds.
Hope this helps.
