BACKGROUND Exercise and pharmacological stress echocardiography have emerged as convenient alternatives to myocardial scintigraphy. The objective of this study was to compare in the same patients the diagnostic values of exercise, dobutamine, and dipyridamole stress echocardiography tests for detection of myocardial ischemia. METHODS AND RESULTS We performed exercise (maximal treadmill Bruce protocol), dobutamine (up to 40 micrograms/kg per minute) and dipyridamole (up to 0.84 mg/kg over 10… CONTINUE READING
