BACKGROUND: This study assessed the non-inferiority and safety of regadenoson administration during recovery from inadequate exercise compared with administration without exercise. METHODS: Patients unable to achieve adequate exercise stress were randomized to regadenoson 0.4 mg either during recovery (Ex-Reg) or 1 hour after inadequate exercise (Regadenoson) (MPI1). All patients also underwent non-exercise regadenoson MPI 1-14 days later (MPI2). The number of segments with reversible perfusion defects (RPDs) detected using single photon emission computerized tomography imaging was categorized...

BACKGROUND: The effective non-invasive identification of coronary artery disease (CAD) and its proper referral for invasive treatment are still unresolved issues. We evaluated our quantification of myocardium at risk (MAR) from our second generation 3D MPI/CTA fusion framework for the detection and localization of obstructive coronary disease. METHODS: Studies from 48 patients who had rest/stress MPI, CTA, and ICA were analyzed from 3 different institutions. From the CTA, a 3D biventricular surface of the myocardium with superimposed coronaries was extracted and fused to the perfusion distribution...

BACKGROUND: The significance of post-stress decrease in left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) with regadenoson stress gated SPECT (GSPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) has not been studied. METHODS AND RESULTS: Consecutive patients who underwent rest/regadenoson stress GSPECT-MPI followed by coronary angiography within 6 months were analyzed. Change in LVEF by GSPECT-MPI was calculated as stress LVEF minus rest LVEF; a significant decrease was tested at 5% and 10% thresholds...

BACKGROUND: We previously reported the clinical feasibility and positive impact on image characteristics of a data-driven cardiac respiratory motion (RM) correction method (REGAT) applicable to CZT SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). Here, we evaluate its impact on the extent and severity of myocardial perfusion defects (MPD). METHODS: We included 25 patients having a 1-day (99m)Tc-Tetrofosmin stress/rest MPI acquired with multi-pinhole CZT SPECT. Acquisitions were processed with REGAT to generate mean RM gated SPECT...

BACKGROUND: There is paucity of data on left ventricular (LV) functional parameters using gated SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) from the Latin American region. This study provides detailed information in low-risk patients both at rest and during exercise. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied 90 patients (50 men) with a very low likelihood of coronary artery disease. Gated-SPECT MPI was performed with Tc-99m MIBI using a 2-day protocol, with 16 frames/R-R cycle...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with SPECT is performed clinically worldwide to detect and monitor coronary artery disease (CAD). MPI allows an objective quantification of myocardial perfusion at stress and rest. This established technique relies on normal databases to compare patient scans against reference normal limits. In this review, we aim to introduce the process of MPI quantification with normal databases and describe the associated perfusion quantitative measures that are used...

INTRODUCTION: Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is widely used in the evaluation of known and suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). Imaging of heart in stress and rest enables the comparison of myocardial uptake of radiotracer in proportion to the needs and coronary flow, which is used for detection of perfusion defects. Exercise stress and pharmacologic agents are used for the stressing purpose. Novel pharmacologic stressor regadenoson is A2A selective adenosine agonist, which selectively binds to the adenosine receptors in coronary arteries causing coronary dilatation...

BACKGROUND: Traditional cardiovascular (CV) risk factors have limited predictive value of CV mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD, creatinine clearance less than 60 mL/minute per 1.73 m(2)). The aim of this study was to evaluate incremental and independent prognostic value of single-photon emission computerized tomography-myocardial perfusion imaging (SPECT-MPI) across continuum of renal function. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 11,518 (mean age, 65 ± 12 years; 52% were men) patients referred for a clinical indication of SPECT-MPI between April 2004 and May 2009...

PURPOSE: Amplitude based respiratory gating is known to capture the extent of respiratory motion (RM) accurately but results in residual motion in the presence of respiratory hysteresis. In our previous study, we proposed and developed a novel approach to account for respiratory hysteresis by applying the Bouc-Wen (BW) model of hysteresis to external surrogate signals of anterior / posterior motion of the abdomen and chest with respiration. In this work using simulated and clinical SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) studies, we investigate the effects of respiratory hysteresis and evaluate the benefit of correcting it using the proposed BW model in comparison with the abdomen signal typically employed clinically...

AIMS: We aimed to investigate whether quantitative plaque features measured from coronary CT angiography (CCTA) predict ischemia by myocardial perfusion SPECT imaging (MPI). METHODS AND RESULTS: Hundred and eighty-four consecutive patients (63% males) with suspected-coronary artery disease, undergoing hybrid CCTA, and attenuation corrected solid state (99m)Tc stress/rest MPI and single vessel ischemia were considered. Quantitative analysis of CCTA derived non-calcified plaque (NCP), low-density NCP [< 30 Hounsfield Units (HU)] (LDNCP), calcified and total plaque burdens (%, normalized to vessel volume), maximum diameter stenosis and contrast density difference (CD, maximum difference in HU/lumen area within lesion)...

OBJECTIVE: An iterative reconstruction method in combination with resolution recovery, attenuation and scatter corrections (IR-RASC) can improve image quality. It, however, is undetermined whether this technique can improve the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) when automated quantitative analysis is used. This study evaluated diagnostic values of IR-RASC in combination with automated quantitative analysis in stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) in the CAD detection. METHODS: This study enrolled consecutive 64 patients (mean age 66...

PURPOSE: Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) with (99m)Tc-sestamibi (sestamibi) SPECT and rubidium-82 ((82)Rb) PET both allow for combined assessment of perfusion and left ventricular (LV) function. We sought to compare parameters of LV function obtained with both methods using a single dipyridamole stress dose. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A group of 221 consecutive patients (65.2 ± 10.4 years, 52.9% male) underwent consecutive sestamibi and (82)Rb MPI after a single dipyridamole stress dose...

BACKGROUND: It is not entirely clear whether ischemia burden on stress single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) effectively identifies patients who have a long-term benefit from coronary revascularization. METHODS: The study population consisted of 719 patients with ischemia on stress SPECT. Early coronary revascularization was defined as percutaneous coronary intervention or coronary artery bypass grafting ≤90 days after SPECT. Patients who underwent late revascularization (>90 days after SPECT) were excluded (n = 164)...

Common practice is to use separate CT scans acquired during rest and stress for attenuation correction of SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI). We evaluated using a single CT scan to correct both rest and stress SPECT scans. Studies from 154 patients were reprocessed using one CT acquired at stress to correct both rest and stress scans (1CT) and compared to correction of each scan with its own CT (2CT). Two expert readers independently read the images and determined summed stress (SSS), rest (SRS), and difference (SDS) scores...

BACKGROUND: Combined assessment of perfusion and function improves diagnostic and prognostic power of gated-SPECT in patients with coronary artery disease. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the presence of stress-induced ischemia is associated with abnormal resting left ventricular (LV) function and intraventricular dyssynchrony. METHODS AND RESULTS: Gated-SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) at rest and 15 min post-stress was performed in 101 patients, who were divided into three groups: those with stress-induced ischemia (Group 1, n = 58), those with normal scans (Group 2, n = 28), and those with scar but no ischemia (Group 3, n = 15)...

Quantitative analysis of myocardial perfusion Single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) images is increasingly applied in modern nuclear cardiology practice, assisting in the interpretation of myocardial perfusion images (MPI). There are different extensively validated state-of-the-art software packages, including QPS (cedars-Sinai), Corridor 4DM (University of Michigan) and Emory cardiac toolbox (Emory university), providing highly accurate and reproducible data. However, these software packages may suffer from potential artifacts related to patient or technical factors...

: Precise definition of the mitral valve plane (VP) during segmentation of the left ventricle (LV) for single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) quantification often requires manual adjustment, which affects quantification of perfusion. We developed a machine learning approach using support vector machines (SVM) for automatic VP placement. METHODS: 392 consecutive patients undergoing fast SPECT MPI (99m)Tc-tetrofosmin stress (5 min, 300-350 MBq)/rest (5 min, 750-1050 MBq) attenuation corrected (AC) by computed tomography (CT) and same‑day coronary CT angiography (CCTA), including 48 patients with invasive angiography (ICA) and no known coronary artery disease, were studied...

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that, in the initial evaluation of patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD), stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) would result in less downstream testing than coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA). METHODS: In this international, randomized trial, mildly symptomatic patients with an intermediate likelihood of having CAD, and asymptomatic patients at intermediate risk of cardiac events, underwent either initial stress-rest MPI or CCTA...
