The effect of beta-blockers on the diagnostic accuracy of vasodilator pharmacologic SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The effect of beta (beta) blockers on the accuracy, particularly the sensitivity, of vasodilator radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is not entirely clear. This study aimed to further assess the effect of beta-blockers on the ability of MPI to identify significant and high-risk coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS AND RESULTS For… (More)
