BACKGROUND We evaluated the diagnostic value of resting echocardiographic findings including total heart calcification (THC) score in combination with dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) for detection of myocardial ischemia. METHODS Altogether, 110 patients with suspected angina pectoris underwent resting echocardiography and DSE. On the basis of… CONTINUE READING
