The prognostic value of myocardial perfusion imaging in African-Americans is unknown. This study compared the prediction of cardiac events of stress technetium-99m (Tc-99m) sestamibi single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging in symptomatic Caucasian and African-American patients. Prospectively collected stress Tc-99m sestamibi tomographic imaging data from 4 medical centers, with follow-up information in 1,086 Caucasian and African-American patients, were analyzed in a core… CONTINUE READING
