Background: In patients with coronary artery disease, coronary angiography is performed for assessment of epicardial coronary artery stenoses. In addition, myocardial scintigraphy is commonly used to evaluate regional myocardial perfusion. These two-dimensional (2D) imaging modalities are typically reviewed through a subjective, visual observation by a physician. Even though on the analysis of 2D display scintigraphic myocardial perfusion segments are arbitrarily assigned to three major… CONTINUE READING
