BACKGROUND Transient ischemic dilation (TID) in the setting of an abnormal SPECT radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) study is considered a marker of severe and extensive coronary artery disease (CAD). However, the clinical significance of TID and its association with CAD in patients with an otherwise normal MPI study is unclear. METHODS From a database of patients who underwent MPI over a 9-year period, 96 without known cardiac history who had normal image perfusion patterns, and… CONTINUE READING
