Seventy-six patients undergoing pharmacologic stress 201TI tomography and coronary angiography within 14 +/- 12 days were studied to determine how well coronary artery disease extent and location could be determined by this scintigraphic technique. No patient had prior myocardial infarction or revascularization. Scintigrams were scored visually and quantitatively. Angiographic lesions > or = 50% were considered significant. Receiver operating characteristic curves were generated for the… CONTINUE READING
