BACKGROUND Although stress-induced left ventricular (LV) wall motion abnormality is a well-known marker for extensive coronary artery disease (CAD), no study has yet analyzed whether phase analysis of exercise-induced LV mechanical dyssynchrony may have enhanced diagnostic value over conventional perfusion analysis in the detection of multivessel CAD. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 278 patients with suspected or confirmed CAD underwent both exercise stress (99m)Tc-sestamibi gated single… CONTINUE READING
