Detecting Heart Disease Using First Pass Imaging With Gated SPECT Perfusion
The aim of this study is to determine if stress first pass imaging in conjunction with a nuclear scan will improve the sensitivity for detecting heart disease. This study will also test the usefulness of a nuclear medicine camera, CDLCAM One Pass Angiography system.
Ischemic Heart Disease
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Detecting Heart Disease Using First Pass Imaging With Gated SPECT Perfusion|
- To determine if stress first pass imaging in conjunction with gated SPECT, with or with out low level exercise,will improve the sensitivity for detecting ischemic heart disease [ Time Frame: First pass imaging done in conjunction with SPECT study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]First pass imaging will be done in conjunction with the clinically indicated SPECT study.
- To determine if first pass imaging provides a more reproducible approach for evaluation of both rest and stress global LV function over gated SPECT perfusion imaging compared with 3D echocardiography [ Time Frame: Immediately following administration of regadenoson. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Echocardiography will be done immediately following the administration of regadenoson.
