Downstream clinical implications of abnormal myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography based on appropriate use criteria.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Appropriate use criteria (AUC) for single-photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion images (SPECT-MPI) were developed to address the growth of cardiac imaging studies. However, these criteria have not been vigorously validated. We sought to determine the rate of abnormal stress SPECT-MPI studies and subsequent revascularization… (More)
