Abstract

Application of radionuclides to the study of the cardiovascular system was first investigated by Blumgart and Yens11 and by Blumgart and Weiss12 in 1927 when they used radium-C and a primitive radiation detector in studies on the velocity of blood flow. In 1948, Prinzmetal et al.95,96 described radiocardiograms of three patients with congenital heart disease using iodine-131 (I-131) sodium iodide and a Geiger-Mueller counter.
