Adenosine myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is now increasingly used for risk stratification of patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease. However, the incremental prognostic value of this test over clinical and historical information in a large series of women has not been examined. Thus, we studied 923 consecutive women who underwent adenosine technetium (Tc)-99m sestamibi myocardial perfusion SPECT and were followed-up for a mean period of… CONTINUE READING
