We evaluated the significance of the diastolic-to-systolic blood flow velocity ratio (DSVR) determined by transthoracic Doppler echocardiography, for a physiologic assessment of the severity of coronary stenosis without stress tests, as compared with thallium 201 single photon emission computed tomography. In 95 patients undergoing thallium 201 single photon emission computed tomography for coronary artery disease, the flow velocity in the distal left anterior descending coronary artery was… CONTINUE READING
