BACKGROUND There is speculation that coronary angiography may be overused for the assessment of coronary artery disease. Because of its proved ability to differentiate high- and low-risk subsets of patients with coronary artery disease, myocardial perfusion scintigraphy should be an effective strategy in patient selection for angiography. This retrospective(More)
Three hundred forty consecutive patients (mean age 69 +/- 9 years) were evaluated with adenosine tomographic thallium-201 scintigraphy for suspected coronary artery disease. Minor side effects occurred in 91% of patients. Out of 28 patients (8%) with potentially serious side effects, 28 had significant atrioventricular (AV) block (second-degree, 24(More)
OBJECTIVES We sought to assess the comparative diagnostic accuracy of adenosine versus exercise in conjunction with thallium-201 scintigraphy for the detection and localization of coronary artery disease in patients with left bundle branch block on the rest electrocardiogram (ECG). BACKGROUND Patients with left bundle branch block on the rest ECG(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of medical management compared with invasive management for patients with mild or moderate ischemia (non-high-risk) on stress tomographic myocardial perfusion scintigraphy. Of the 1,352 non-high-risk patients, 116 (9%) subsequently were referred for coronary angiography within the first 30 days after(More)
The cumulative published literature dealing with the most frequently utilized noninvasive cardiac stress imaging modalities (radionuclide myocardial perfusion scintigraphy and echocardiography) was reviewed to gain insight on their comparative diagnostic accuracies. To be included, studies had to be performed in conjunction with exercise or a commonly used(More)
Here, we demonstrate that the assembly of nanostructures with different dimensionalities yields "multicomponent hybrid" transparent conductive films (TCFs) with sheet resistance and optical transmittance comparable to that of indium tin oxide (ITO) films. It was shown that sheet resistance of single-component Ag nanowire (NW) films can be further decreased(More)
How do bacteria regulate their cellular physiology in response to starvation? Here, we present a detailed characterization of Escherichia coli growth and starvation over a time-course lasting two weeks. We have measured multiple cellular components, including RNA and proteins at deep genomic coverage, as well as lipid modifications and flux through central(More)
Intravenous adenosine infusion results in immediate maximal coronary arteriolar vasodilatation. Side effects occur in most patients who receive adenosine. For these reasons, a shorter infusion for pharmacologic stress thallium-201 testing may improve patient tolerability without compromising diagnostic accuracy. In a retrospective, unblinded evaluation, we(More)
Modern systems biology requires extensive, carefully curated measurements of cellular components in response to different environmental conditions. While high-throughput methods have made transcriptomics and proteomics datasets widely accessible and relatively economical to generate, systematic measurements of both mRNA and protein abundances under a wide(More)
