Both dipyridamole and exercise-201Tl imaging are sensitive, specific and of prognostic value in patients with suspected coronary artery disease, following myocardial infarction, and undergoing major noncardiac surgery. Though reported sensitivities and specificities vary widely from 60% to 100%, the consensus is that both are between 80% and 90% for both dipyridamole and exercise studies (23). Moreover, when compared directly in the same study populations, the two have equal sensitivities and… CONTINUE READING
