AIMS To evaluate the accuracy of echocardiography in conjunction with quantitative high-dose dipyridamole technetium-99m sestamibi tomography (SPECT) in detecting coronary allograft vasculopathy. METHODS AND RESULTS Seventy-eight consecutive heart transplant recipients underwent echocardiography while at rest and high-dose dipyridamole SPECT within 48 h(More)
Seventy-four consecutive patients with angina undergoing single-lesion percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty were evaluated with high-dose (up to 0.84 mg/kg during 10 minutes) dipyridamole echocardiography test (DET) before angioplasty and when possible, afterward.

The aim of this study was to assess the safety and prognostic value of dipyridamole 201T1 imaging very early after acute myocardial infarction in patients treated with thrombolytic therapy. Fifty-two consecutive patients with an uncomplicated clinical course underwent quantitative planar dipyridamole 201T1 imaging 2 5 days after acute myocardial infarction.(More)
