OBJECTIVES This study was conducted to examine the efficacy of dobutamine stress two-dimensional echocardiography and perfusion scintigraphy for the detection of coronary artery disease in routine practice, to establish the causes of erroneous results and to derive appropriate criteria for the selection of either or both tests. BACKGROUND Dobutamine stress combined with echocardiography or perfusion scintigraphy may be used to detect coronary artery disease. Although both imaging approaches… CONTINUE READING
