Although there is widespread use of exercise thallium 201 scintigraphy and radionuclide angiocardiography in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), little is known about the independence, concordance, or relative importance of these studies in the diagnosis, prognosis, and assessment of the outcome of therapy. The use of both tests in the same patient has been impractical because of the logistic considerations imposed by two exercise tests on separate days, and excessive radiation… CONTINUE READING
