This computerized method of EKG gated radionuclide angiography has a temporal resolution of 100 frames/sec. Left ventricular volume curves can be extracted from the radionuclide angiograms. These curves show a close correlation with curves extracted from contrast angiography and also with flowmeter values in a baboon model. A computer is used to subtract end-systolic from end-diastolic images to produce an image which reveals areas of focal myocardial dyskinesia. The radionuclide angiogram may be displayed in a cine format which allows qualitative assessment of left ventricular movements.
