AIM Coronary angiography is still the most reliable method for the detection of coronary artery disease. In this study we compared to this method the accuracy of 99mTc-Tetrofosmin myocardial SPECT. METHOD Fifty two patients (38 male and 14 female) were studied with stress-rest 99mTc-Tetrofosmin myocardial SPECT. Two independent observers evaluated the uptake of the radiotracer using a score from 0 to 4. All patients underwent coronary angiography and the results were compared to SPECT… CONTINUE READING
