Figure 5: Viability assessment with perfusion - metabolism protocol using 13N- ammonia (upper row) and 18F-FDG (lower row).Severe perfusion defect is noted in the LAD territory (apex, peri-apical, apical to mid anterior- anteroseptal walls showing preserved metabolism (mismatch)- suggestive of viable hibernating myocardium
