BACKGROUND Dipyridamole stress combined with echocardiography or perfusion scintigraphy can be used to detect coronary artery disease, but head-to-head comparative data are lacking. The aim of this study was to compare the relative accuracy of high-dose dipyridamole stress imaging (up to 0.84 mg/kg over 10 min) with two-dimensional echocardiography and sestamibi perfusion scintigraphy in detecting coronary artery disease. METHODS One-hundred and one patients with a history of chest pain and… CONTINUE READING
