UNLABELLED Either gated myocardial perfusion SPECT or attenuation-corrected SPECT can be used to improve specificity in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD). We investigated whether attenuation-noncorrected gating and ungated attenuation correction could improve the diagnostic performance of rest/stress perfusion SPECT in patients having an intermediate pretest likelihood of CAD. METHODS Sixty-eight patients (29 men, 39 women; mean age, 59 +/- 12 y) with coronary artery stenosis… CONTINUE READING
