Myocardial uptake using (99m)Tc-sestamibi single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) depends largely on myocardial microvascular volume. Myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) is a(More)
AIMS Recent data have shown that exercise electrocardiogram (ECG) has no incremental prognostic value over clinical and rest ECG parameters in chest pain patients without a history of coronary artery(More)
AIMS Controversy exists regarding the relative status of resting myocardial blood flow (MBF), coronary flow reserve (CFR), and contractile reserve (CR) in hibernating myocardium (HM). We hypothesized(More)
BACKGROUND Single photon-emission computed tomography (SPECT) is widely used for the assessment of hibernating myocardium (HM). The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that myocardial(More)
