In order to compare the effectiveness of thaHium-201 (20111) myocardial perfusion scintigraphy and the exercise electrocardiogram for identifying patients with multivessel coronary artery disease, these noninvasive tests and coronary arteriography were performed in 89 patients with prior inferior wall myocardial infarction. Eighty patients performed an adequate exercise test (angina, ST-segment depression or achievement of 85 percent maximum age-predicted heart rate). Of these 80 patients… CONTINUE READING
