                 vessel was not helpful in predicting the size of the
                 area at risk''. A line from the abstract of this paper.
                 The authors suggest that area at risk is a major
                 predictor of the outcome of AMI but that knowledge of
                 the anatomic site of occlusion cannot be used to
                 predict this area at risk. The technique these authors
                 describe to estimate area at risk is via the
                 administration of Tc-macroaggregated albumin together
                 with gated nuclear imaging., Ischemia044",
