Dobutamine stress tagging and gradient echo imaging for detection of coronary heart disease at 3 T

The British Journal of Radiology, 10/20/2010

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and diagnostic accuracy of a combined spoiled gradient echo (sGRE) and tagged gradient echo (SPAMM–GRE) protocol for detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) during high–dose dobutamine stress at 3 T. The study protocol was approved by the local ethics committee. For stress testing, a standard high–dose dobutamine protocol was employed. Image quality at the highest stress level, diagnostic accuracy of the sGRE and SPAMM–GRE sequences were compared
