Figure 1: Myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography and18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography images of a patient with fasting blood glucose level of 3.9 mmol/L (70.2 mg/dl) who received 50 g oral glucose and 4 unit insulin. Blood glucose at the time of18F-fluorodeoxyglucose injection was 8.3 mmol/L (149.4 mg/dl). Single photon emission computed tomography images demonstrate moderate size fixed perfusion defect involving apex, anterior, and anteroseptal walls with mild possible ischemia in inferior wall.18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography images demonstrate small area of viability in the anterior and anteroseptal base.18F-fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in the rest of the myocardium is near normal with only mild reduction in the inferior wall
