Eur J Nucl Med Mol Imaging. 2021 Sep 7:1-6. doi: 10.1007/s00259-021-05552-4. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: To investigate if (i) the risk of ischemia on myocardial perfusion scan (MPS), (ii) number of coronary angiographies (CAG) performed, and (iii) necessity for invasive (stent implantation or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG)) or medical treatment increased in patients infected with COVID-19.METHODS: Patients who were referred to MPS between August 2020 and April 2021 with a history of active symptomatic COVID-19 infection (confirmed by PCR positivity) in the last 6 months were involved in the study group....
Infections of the cardiovascular system may present with nonspecific symptoms, and it is common for patients to undergo multiple investigations to arrive at the diagnosis. Echocardiography is central to the diagnosis of endocarditis and pericarditis. However, cardiac computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging also play an additive role in these diagnoses; in fact, magnetic resonance imaging is central to the diagnosis of myocarditis. Functional imaging (fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/CT and radiolabeled white blood cell single-photon emission computed tomography/CT) is useful in th...

Conclusion: Despite prophylactic anticoagulation, the mismatched defects, suggestive of pulmonary thromboembolism were observed. Serum D-dimer in early post-COVID-19 is a poor predictor of mismatched perfusion defects. Confirmed evidence of pulmonary embolism by imaging studies should support the decision to extend anticoagulant prophylaxis.PMID:34330803 | DOI:10.2967/jnmt.121.262440
