This study compares the value of dobutamine stress echocardiography and 99m-technetium methoxyisobutyl-isonitrile (MIBI) single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in the assessment of extent and location of coronary narrowing in patients with healed myocardial infarction. Dobutamine (up to 40 microg/kg/ min)-atropine (up to 1 mg) stress echocardiography (DSE) in conjunction with MIBI SPECT was performed in 72 patients (52 men, mean age 57 +/- 11 years) with healed myocardial infarction… CONTINUE READING
