Cardiac stress imaging for the prediction of very long-term outcomes: Dobutamine stress echocardiography or dobutamine 99mTc-sestamibi SPECT?

Background Both dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) and myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) using single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) are frequently used for cardiac risk stratification. The long-term relative prognostic value of these modalities has not been studied. Therefore, this study evaluated the long-term prognostic value of DSE compared to MPI in...

Value of automatic patient motion detection and correction in myocardial perfusion imaging using a CZT-based SPECT camera

Background Correction of motion has become feasible on cadmium-zinc-telluride (CZT)-based SPECT cameras during myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). Our aim was to quantify the motion and to determine the value of automatic correction using commercially available software. Methods and Results We retrospectively included 83 consecutive patients who underwent stress-rest MPI CZT...

Could FDG-PET imaging play a role in the detection of progressing atherosclerosis in HIV-infected patients?

Important progresses in the management of patients with human immunodeficiency virus, in particular the advent of new anti-retroviral therapies (ART), have turned this rapidly fatal condition into a controllable chronic disease with a life expectancy that approaches the one from the general population. Cardiovascular diseases have now become one of the leading causes of non-HIV...
