Figure 4

Polar maps of healthy volunteers with myocardial FDG uptake. There were two patterns of myocardial FDG uptake (grade 2, 3, or 4) in healthy volunteers when they had preparation with 12-h fast plus heparin injection (HEP) or long fast (16 h or more, LF). The polar map patterns include (1) a diffuse uptake pattern and (2) a basal ring-like and/or lateral uptake pattern.
