OBJECTIVES This study evaluated both the relation between dobutamine-induced wall motion abnormalities and the physiologic and morphologic features of epicardial coronary artery stenoses and the impact of the extent of the area at risk on the sensitivity of dobutamine echocardiography. BACKGROUND The accuracy of dobutamine echocardiography has traditionally been assessed by comparing results with stenosis geometry. Myocardial fractional flow reserve is a functional index of coronary stenosis… CONTINUE READING
