Changes in cardiovascular medication after coronary artery calcium scanning and normal single photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion imaging in symptomatic patients.

Abstract

The impact of coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring on subsequent changes in cardiovascular medication use in symptomatic patients with normal myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) findings is not well established. The aim of the current study was to evaluate changes in aspirin and statin use in patients suspected for coronary artery disease after CAC scoring… (More)
