Gated myocardial SPECT to predict response to beta-blocker therapy in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Because of the difficulty of predicting the response of patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC) to beta-blocker therapy, this study was performed to evaluate whether gated myocardial SPECT (gated SPECT) could be useful for predicting that response. METHODS We performed gated SPECT with (99m)Tc-sestamibi on 38 patients with IDC… (More)
