BACKGROUND This study examined the prognostic value of adenosine single-photon emission computed tomographic thallium imaging in medically treated patients with angiographic evidence of coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS AND RESULTS Patients who underwent coronary revascularization within 3 months of this study were excluded. There were 177 patients(More)
BACKGROUND This study examined the independent and incremental prognostic value of exercise thallium single-photon emission computed tomographic imaging in 212 women who also underwent coronary angiography. METHODS AND RESULTS The left ventricular ejection fraction was normal (65% +/- 15%). During a mean follow-up of 40 months, 27 women had events(More)
Background: Coronary artery disease (CAD) is often silent in diabetic patients, and it is typically in advanced stages of development by the time it manifests. Various forms of stress testing have been investigated to detect obstructive CAD in diabetes mellitus. Objectives: To assess the diagnostic value of dobutamine stress pulsed-wave Doppler tissue(More)
This study examines the prognostic implications of normal exercise tomographic thallium images in medically treated patients with angiographic evidence of coronary artery disease (CAD). There were 97 patients aged 60 +/- 10 years; 52 had 1-, 30 had 2-, and 15 had 3-vessel CAD (> or = 50% diameter stenosis). The exercise test was submaximal in 51 patients(More)
