BACKGROUND In selected patients, stress-only SPECT imaging has been proposed as an alternative to rest-stress SPECT imaging to improve laboratory efficiency and reduce radiation exposure. The impact of attenuation correction (AC) upon interpretation, post-test patient management and cardiac risk stratification in relation to stress-only imaging is not well understood. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical value for laboratory throughput and predicting outcomes of… CONTINUE READING
