This brief communication examines potential pitfalls in myocardial perfusion SPECT and offers strategies to prevent the loss of diagnostic integrity of data sets. In particular, this paper provides an overview of potential sources of false positive and/or false negative findings in myocardial perfusion SPECT. In the first instance, the potential sources and solutions of artifact in myocardial perfusion SPECT is discussed. Gated SPECT is introduced with respect to being a potential solution for differentiating artifact from actual defect while recognition is made of the added potential sources of error gating introduces.
