Impact of stress single-photon emission computed tomography perfusion imaging on downstream resource utilization

Academic Article

Abstract

  • In summary, our data showed that screening patients with intermediate pretest probability of CAD by stress SPECT perfusion imaging result in a lower utilization rate of coronary angiography and coronary revascularization and is economically superior to a strategy based on coronary angiography as the initial screening.
