SPECT/CT Imaging of Skeletal Muscle Perfusion
“SPECT/CT Imaging of Skeletal Muscle Perfusion”
This study will use SPECT/CT imaging to assess the effect of percutaneous revascularization treatments in patients with Peripheral arterial disease and diabetes mellitus, in whom the disease can progress more quickly than in patients without diabetes.
Device - SPECT/CT imaging following revascularization procedures
Subjects will undergo resting perfusion imaging of the feet using two separate SPECT/CT systems. Subjects will be injected with a low dose radioisotope. Heated venous blood sampling will be obtained.
Device - SPECT/CT imaging
Subjects will undergo resting perfusion imaging of the feet using two separate SPECT/CT systems. Subjects will be injected with a low dose radioisotope. In addition to heated venous blood sampling, arterial blood will be continuously sampled from the radial artery for calculation of a blood input function and K1 values for foot angiosomes.
