Abstract

In a dog model of myocardial ischemia, i.v. injection of [67Cu]Cu(PTSM) leads to an excellent linear correlation for both the heart and kidney between regional tissue radiocopper concentration and regional blood flow measured by radioactive micropheres. The 62Cu-labeled complex may serve as a generator-produced positron-emitting perfusion tracer for these organs.
