  • UNLABELLED Obesity is a major heath problem associated with increased cardiovascular mortality. There are currently no data to support a role for stress imaging techniques in the risk stratification of obese patients. The aim of this study was to assess the independent value of stress 99mTc-tetrofosmin SPECT in predicting mortality and hard cardiac events in obese patients. METHODS We studied 265 patients with a body mass index greater than 30 kg/m2 by exercise or dobutamine stress 99mTc… CONTINUE READING
