The value of dobutamine echocardiography and 99mTc-sestamibi SPECT imaging was evaluated as a noninvasive diagnostic method for assessing coronary artery disease (CAD). Twenty-seven patients who underwent coronary angiography were submitted to two separate injections of 99mTc-sestamibi, one under control conditions and the other after reaching a peak dobutamine infusion rate. Simultaneous ECG and echocardiographic monitoring was also performed during stepwise dobutamine infusion. Whereas the… CONTINUE READING
