A patient with infective endocarditis was evaluated by Ga-67 citrate imaging, Tc-99m pyrophosphate imaging, equilibrium gated blood pool imaging, and Tl-201 imaging of the chest. The diagnosis of ventricular abscess was first suggested by an abnormal gallium scan. At surgery, an abscess was identified in the area where the scan was abnormal, and postoperatively a repeat scan was normal.
