Excerpt: 

SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is one of the most common nuclear medicine procedures undertaken in the UK with over 80,000 performed per year. It is used for managing cardiovascular disease, which often presents as angina and can lead to myocardial infarction (MI). 99mTc SPECT MPI is non-invasive nuclear medicine imaging that provides functional information about the blood flow to the heart muscles and is the gold standard for diagnosis of MI.
