Through many case studies and images, chapters address evaluating myocardial perfusion SPECT (single-photon emission computed tomography); interpretation, reporting, and guidelines; image artifacts; radionuclide angiography; stress test techniques; serial testing; stable patients with coronary artery disease; and patients with PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) and CABG (coronary artery bypass grafting), acute coronary syndrome, heart failure and cardiomyopathy and other forms of heart disease, and chest pain.
Radionuclide angiography, a non-invasive diagnostic test, evaluates cardiac function.
The cardiologists also had access to the radiologists' report on the chest x-ray; past medical history from old charts; and subsequent test results such as echocardiography, radionuclide angiography, and left ventricular angiography if performed, and the hospital course for patients admitted to the hospital.
