Confirmation of myocardial infarction by ECG and 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging. a ECG confirmed ST segment of the anterior wall leads dynamic changes in different time points. b Hybrid imaging of myocardial 18F-FDG PET/CT showed that the apical level and anterior wall and anterior septal of mid-level in the BBS group presented myocardial metabolic defect 3 months post-MI. The average standard uptake value (SUV) of region of interest (ROI) indicated by red arrows was 1.50 ± 0.52, which was lower than 8.24 ± 1.29 with SUVavg of non-ROI (P < 0.05, n = 5)
