Right Ventricular Hypertrophy and Pulmonary Hypertension: A Correlation Analysis
The study hypothesis is that a quantitative index can be derived from Tc-99m myocardial perfusion scans that accurately identifies the presence of left ventricular hypertrophy and pulmonary hypertension. Echocardiography provides the reference standard.
