BACKGROUND Myocardial perfusion and fatty acid imaging have played important roles in the risk stratification of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). However, visual image assessment requires considerable experience and training. Therefore, an automated program has been developed that can quantify perfusion and fatty acid uptake on myocardial single emission computed tomography (SPECT). The present study aimed to validate the automated quantitative program. METHODS AND RESULTS A total… CONTINUE READING
