Adenosine stress myocardial perfusion imaging was performed with an intravenous adenosine and radiopharmaceutical injection in the same line. A syringe containing 720 μg/kg of adenosine in 40 ml of saline was prepared and injected at the constant infusion rate of 400 ml/h. Adenosine was temporarily stopped by the stopcock when 1.5 ml of thallium was(More)
The aim of this study was to examine whether the heart rate response to adenosine differs after 12 hours [Good control (Good-C)] versus 24 hours [Excellent control (Exc-C)] of caffeine abstinence in adenosine stress thallium-201 (TL) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). Patients (n=729) with suspected ischemic heart disease underwent adenosine TL-MPI after(More)
