Dobutamine stress echocardiography compared with dipyridamole thallium-201 single-photon emission computed tomography in detecting coronary artery disease.

Abstract

To compare the diagnostic value of dobutamine stress echocardiography with dipyridamole thallium-201 single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) in detecting coronary artery disease (CAD), we performed both tests on 54 patients who also underwent coronary arteriography. Dobutamine was infused at an incremental regimen of 5, 10, 20, 30 and 40… (More)
