Thallium perfusion imaging following the intravenous infusion of dipyridamole, a potent coronary vasodilator, has been demonstrated to be useful in the evaluation of the functional significance of coronary artery disease (CAD). While recent studies have demonstrated that 2-dimensional echocardiographic monitoring of left ventricular (LV) function after intravenous dipyridamole has a sensitivity somewhat less than that of thallium perfusion imaging, none has examined the usefulness of Doppler… CONTINUE READING
