Question 1: Which of the vessels likely provides blood supply to the circled area in the below polar plot image in a patient with normal coronary anatomy?

  1. Septal branches of the left anterior descending coronary artery

  2. Diagonal branches of the left anterior descending coronary artery

  3. Posterior descending branch of the right coronary artery

  4. Obtuse marginal branch of the left circumflex coronary artery

 

Question 2: A 70 year old female with history of chest pain presents for myocardial perfusion scan with Tc99m sestamibi. "Rotating" planar, tomographic, and polar plot images are pictured below. Left ventricular systolic function at rest was normal with LVEF of 68%. Which of the following is true?

  1. There is normal myocardial perfusion and no evidence of myocardial ischemia but an abnormality is noted on "rotating" planar imaging.

  2. There is anterior wall ischemia and an abnormality is noted on "rotating" planar imaging.

  3. There is septal ischemia and an abnormality is noted on "rotating" planar imaging.

  4. There is normal myocardial perfusion and no abnormality is noted on "rotating" planar imaging.
