Indications and Usage

INDICATIONS AND USAGE: Thallous Chloride TI 201 Injection may be useful in myocardial perfusion imaging using either planar or SPECT (Single Photon Computed Tomography) techniques for the diagnosis and localization of myocardial infarction.

It may also have prognostic value regarding survival, when used in the clinically stable patient following the onset of symptoms of an acute myocardial infarction, to assess the site and size of the perfusion defect.Thallous Chloride TI 201 Injection may also be useful in conjunction with exercise stress testing as an adjunct in the diagnosis of ischemic heart disease (atherosclerotic coronary artery disease).It is usually not possible to differentiate recent from old myocardial infarction, or to differentiate between recent myocardial infarction and ischemia.

Thallous Chloride TI 201 Injection is indicated also for the localization of sites of parathyroid hyperactivity in patients with elevated serum calcium and parathyroid hormone levels.

It may also be useful in pre-operative screening to localize extrathyroidal and mediastinal sites of parathyroid hyperactivity and for postsurgical reexamination.

Thallous Chloride Tl 201 Injection has not been adequately demonstrated to be effective for the localization of normal parathyroid glands.
Myocardial Infarction -- NECROSIS of the MYOCARDIUM caused by an obstruction of the blood supply to the heart (CORONARY CIRCULATION).

Symptoms -- An indication that a person has a condition or disease. Some examples of symptoms are headache, fever, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and pain.

Acute myocardial infarction --

THYROID HORMONE PLASMA MEMBRANE TRANSPORT DEFECT --

Coronary Artery Disease -- Pathological processes of CORONARY ARTERIES that may derive from a congenital abnormality, atherosclerotic, or non-atherosclerotic cause.

Ischemia -- A hypoperfusion of the BLOOD through an organ or tissue caused by a PATHOLOGIC CONSTRICTION or obstruction of its BLOOD VESSELS, or an absence of BLOOD CIRCULATION.

Contraindications
CONTRAINDICATIONS: None known.
Warnings

WARNINGS: In studying patients in whom myocardial infarction or ischemia is known or suspected, care should be taken to assure continuous clinical monitoring and treatment in accordance with safe, accepted procedure.

Exercise stress testing should be performed only under the supervision of a qualified physician and in a laboratory equipped with appropriate resuscitation and support apparatus.
