Prediction of 9-year cardiovascular outcomes by myocardial perfusion imaging in patients with normal exercise electrocardiographic testing
European Heart Journal – Cardiovascular Imaging, 05/16/2012
Schinkel AFL et al. – Approximately 20% of patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease and normal exercise electrocardiographic testing have completely or partially reversible myocardial perfusion defects. Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) provides additional information for the prediction of 9–year cardiovascular outcomes in these patients.
