To assess the diagnostic value of adenosine “stress-only” myocardial perfusion MR for ischemia detection as an indicator for coronary angiography in patients without a prior myocardial infarction and a necessity to exclude ischemia. Adenosine perfusion MRI was performed at 1.5 T in 139 patients with a suspicion of ischemia and no prior myocardial(More)
A 38-year-old man presented with severe retrosternal pain that had persisted for several days. Physical examination, resting ECG and circulating levels of cardiac markers were normal. The patient had continuous pain during a bicycle test, but no signs of myocardial ischaemia were found. A CT scan was performed, and the resulting CT calcium score was 40(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic value of a coronary artery calcium score (CACS) of 0 in patients with stable chest symptoms and to compare it as a first-line test with bicycle exercise testing (X-ECG). Altogether, 315 consecutive patients over 44 years of age, with stable chest symptoms and no previous diagnosis of coronary(More)
