Correlation of Myocardial Perfusion on Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Versus Myocardial Perfusion Scintigraphy in Cardiac Syndrome X

Abstract

Background: In cardiac syndrome X, which is a syndrome defined as chest pain, positive exercise stress testing and/or reversible myocardial perfusion defects during myocardial scintigraphy and normal coronary angiograms, the ischemic origin is still debated. No previous study compared the myocardial perfusion in stress first-pass cardiac magnetic resonance… (More)
