OBJECTIVES We sought to compare the feasibility and accuracy of peak and postexercise treadmill echocardiography with the use of continuous harmonic imaging capture. BACKGROUND Previous work has demonstrated the superiority of peak exercise echocardiography (EE) as compared with post-EE for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD). However, most of these studies used fundamental imaging and view-per-view acquisition systems. Technical advantages in stress echocardiography include… CONTINUE READING
