BACKGROUND: In asymptomatic end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients undergoing vasodilator stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) prior to renal transplantation (RT), the impact of pre-transplant heart rate response (HRR) to vasodilator stress on post-RT outcomes is unknown. METHODS: We analyzed a retrospective cohort of asymptomatic patients with ESRD who underwent a vasodilator stress SPECT-MPI and subsequently received RT. Blunted HRR was defined as HRR <28% for regadenoson stress and <20% for adenosine stress...

BACKGROUND: In patients with normal SPECT but persistent complaints, invasive angiography may exclude obstructive coronary disease. We assessed whether high coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores are associated with increased referral for invasive angiography following normal SPECT. METHODS AND RESULTS: 2286 consecutive patients (mean age 60 ± 12, 39% male) with normal SPECT were assessed. All patients underwent simultaneous CAC scoring. Patients were categorized into four groups based on their CAC score: CAC = 0 (n = 694), CAC 1 to 100 (n = 891), CAC 101 to 400 (n = 368), and CAC >400 (n = 333)...

OBJECTIVE: We performed a meta-analysis evaluating the use of fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) positron-emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) infections. BACKGROUND: PET/CT may be helpful in the diagnosis of CIED infection, particularly in patients with the absence of localizing signs or definitive echocardiographic findings. METHODS: PubMed, Embase, Cochrane library, CINAHL, Web of Knowledge, and www...

BACKGROUND: Attenuation correction using segmentation of scatter and photo-peak window data (SSPAC) enables an evaluation of the attenuation map in a patient-specific manner without additional radiation exposure. We compared the accuracy of SSPAC and non-corrected myocardial perfusion scintigraphy methods for diagnosing the number of stenosed coronary artery vessels. METHODS AND RESULTS: We retrospectively reviewed the data from 183 consecutive patients who underwent (99m)Tc-tetrofosmin stress/rest SPECT examination and a coronary angiography within 3 months...

Cardiac amyloidosis is a form of restrictive cardiomyopathy resulting in heart failure and potential risk on arrhythmia, due to amyloid infiltration of the nerve conduction system and the myocardial tissue. The prognosis in this progressive disease is poor, probably due the development of cardiac arrhythmias. Early detection of cardiac sympathetic innervation disturbances has become of major clinical interest, because its occurrence and severity limits the choice of treatment. The use of iodine-123 labelled metaiodobenzylguanidine ([I-123]MIBG), a chemical modified analogue of norepinephrine, is well established in patients with heart failure and plays an important role in evaluation of sympathetic innervation in cardiac amyloidosis...

In 2012, the American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF) and the American Heart Association (AHA) Task Force on Practice Guidelines jointly with the American College of Physicians, American Association for Thoracic Surgery, Preventive Cardiovascular Nurses Association, Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions, and Society of Thoracic Surgeons produced a set of recommendations intended to assist physicians in the diagnosis and management of patients with stable ischemic heart disease. Two years later, a focused update on the 2012 guidelines was published...

Measuring absolute myocardial blood flow (MBF) is becoming a common aid for diagnosing patients suspected to have coronary artery disease. An MBF study, however, requires a scanner with high count rate capability, is more susceptible to artifacts, and is much more technically involved than static imaging, which leads to a greater risk of artifactual results contaminating the final result. This technical note gives the reader an introductory understanding of the method for calculating MBF. It then describes the scanning protocol, potential pitfalls and how to recognize them, and quality control steps that should be taken to avoid basing a clinical decision on possibly inaccurate flow information...

BACKGROUND: Exercise is the AHA/ACC guideline-recommended stress modality for myocardial perfusion imaging, but many patients are unable to exercise to target heart rate on a conventional treadmill. We examined the feasibility and safety of stress imaging using an anti-gravity treadmill in patients with perceived poor exercise capacity. METHODS AND RESULTS: 49 patients were recruited for stress testing by anti-gravity treadmill (n = 29) or to a regadenoson control group (n = 20)...
