Sammanfattning (abstract):
© 2016, Springer Science+Business Media New York. Cardiac positron emission tomography is a powerful, quantitative, non-invasive imaging modality, which adds valuable diagnostic and prognostic information to the clinical work-up. Myocardial perfusion and viability imaging are, as a result of continuously growing evidence, established clinical indications that may be cost-effective, due to the high diagnostic accuracy of cardiac positron emission tomography, despite high single-test costs. In the field of inflammation imaging, new indications are entering the clinical arena, which may contribute to a better diagnosis and overall patient care, as for instance in patients with cardiac sarcoidosis, prosthetic valve endocarditis and cardiac device infections. This review will discuss the individual strengths and weaknesses of cardiac positron emission tomography and, hence, the resulting clinical usefulness based on the current evidence for an individualized, patient-centered imaging approach.
