OBJECTIVE The IMAGING in Heart Failure study was a prospective, multi-national trial designed to explore the role of single-photon emission computed tomographic (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) as an initial investigative strategy in patients hospitalized with new-onset heart failure. METHODS We recruited 201 patients (age 65.3 +/- 14.5 years,(More)
Radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging (RMPI) has served as a clinical mainstay in the management of patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) for more than two decades. RMPI provides information beyond the mere detection of disease, delineating the extent, severity, and location of perfusion abnormalities. These data also have(More)
IMPORTANCE Appropriate use criteria (AUC) assist health care professionals in making decisions about procedures and diagnostic testing. In some cases, multiple AUC exist for a single procedure or test. To date, the extent of agreement between multiple AUC has not been evaluated. OBJECTIVE To measure discordance between the American College of Cardiology(More)
This document from the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology represents an updated consensus statement on the evidence base of stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), emphasizing new developments in single-photon emission tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET) in the clinical evaluation of women presenting with symptoms of stable(More)
To evaluate the role of analysis of right ventricular function with exercise in patients with presumed coronary artery disease referred for radionuclide ventriculography, the records of 55 patients referred to our laboratory over a 19-month period were reviewed. All underwent rest and exercise first-pass radionuclide stress testing and cardiac(More)
