Caption: Healthy heart muscle. Coloured SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) scans of the heart showing blood flow from the ventricles. Transverse "slices" show systole (top left) and diastole (upper & lower right) heart contractions; where blood is pumped out of the ventricle and drawn into the atrium respectively. A white line is drawn over the left ventricle & blood flow rate is indicated by the coloured bar beside each scan (red=high, blue=low). A frontal section is seen at lower left. Blood flow is measured by injecting the patient with a radioactive tracer (technetium- 99m) and scanning using a gamma camera.
