Comparison of two-dimensional echocardiography with radionuclide angiography during dynamic exercise for the detection of coronary artery disease.

Abstract

Two-dimensional echocardiography (2DE) was performed during 30-degree left lateral decubitus bicycle exercise in 52 patients who underwent cardiac catheterization for suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). Adequate echocardiograms were obtained in 39 patients (75%). Thirty-five of these patients underwent radionuclide angiography (RNA) with the same… (More)
