BACKGROUND We evaluated the relationship between computed tomography angiography (CTA) and SPECT, and assessed to determine the clinical usefulness of the fusion image using CTA and myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). METHODS Forty-one consecutive patients [after coronary artery bypass operation (n = 13) and suspected stenosis (n = 28)] underwent MPI and CTA. SPECT/CTA fused images were generated. RESULTS In total, 687 segments including bypass graft in 164 coronary arteries were analyzed… CONTINUE READING
