BACKGROUND: Global functional parameters are available from electrocardiographic gated Rubidium-82 positron emission tomography/computed tomography (82Rb-PET/CT). However, the reproducibility of these data is not clarified. We aimed to investigate reproducibility of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), endsystolic volume (ESV), enddiastolic volume (EDV), and left ventricular (LV) mass between two scans and between two commercially available software packages.

METHODS AND RESULTS: Forty healthy young volunteers underwent two 82Rb-PET/CT rest and adenosine stress scans obtaining global functional parameters. Corridor4DM (4DM) and Quantitative Gated SPECT (QGS) were used for analyses. Mean (± SD) age was 24 ± 4 years and 50% were men. High reproducibility of all parameters was found between scans and this was true for both software packages. LVEF at rest with 4DM: mean difference (95% CI) - 1.1 (- 3.0 to 0.8), P = .25, limits of agreement: - 12.8 to 10.6. Significant differences were found between software packages on all functional parameters (P < .0001).

CONCLUSION: High reproducibility was found between scans when measuring LVEF, ESV, EDV, and LV mass from 82Rb-PET/CT. However, concordance between parameter measures was poor when comparing the two software packages. Thus, global functional parameter measures are reliable, but the same software package should be used within a study and when comparing absolute values.
