Thallium-201 Myocardial Imaging in Patients with Transposition of the Great Arteries: Assessment of Systolic Pressure of the Left Ventricle
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical validity of thallium-201 myocardial imaging in assessment of both the systolic pressure of the left ventricle in patients with preoperative transposition of the great arteries (TGA) and the systolic pressure of the pulmonic ventricle in patients with postoperative TGA.
