Abstract

A dynamic heart model for the mathematical cardiac torso (MCAT) phantom to represent the invariant total heart volume was discussed. The myocardial wall thickening was measured to test the applicability of the dynamic heart model. The analysis suggested the use of dynamic MCAT (dMCAT) phantom for studying the influence of various physical parameters on radionuclide perfusion imaging.
