The application of radionuclides to study the cardiovascular system was first investigated by Blumgart and Yens1 and Blumgart and Weiss2 in 1927.These investigators used radium C and a primitive radiation detector to study blood-flow velocity. In 1948 and 1949, Prinzmetal et al.3,4 described radiocardiograms of three patients with congenital heart disease using iodine-131 (131I), sodium iodine, and a Geiger-Mueller counter.
