Abstract

Dextrocardia, although a rare cardiac abnormality, carries the same risk for cardiac events as other people. SPECT Myocardial perfusion imaging is a potentially helpful diagnostic tool in patients with dextrocardia. Because of swapping of lateral and septal walls on SPECT slices, although visual analysis is possible, quantitation is substantially limited. Here, we introduce a simple practical method to make quantitative analysis feasible and accurate.
