Verani Stress perfusion imaging and stress echocardiography (ECHO) are both very useful for assessment of diagnosis and risk stratification of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Both techniques have been well validated during exercise and inotropic stress, but coronary vasodilation stress is better used in combination with perfusion imaging. The overall sensitivity for detection of CAD is slightly higher by single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) than by two-dimensional (2D) ECHO during all stress modalities, whereas the specificity is slightly higher by ECHO, although the differences in general are not statistically significant.

Iskandrian et al128 reported on 59 patients who underwent adenosine stress SPECT thallium imaging. The lung-to-heart ratio in the initial images was significantly higher in patients with CAD than in normal patients, increasing with the extent of disease. There was a significant correlation between the lung-to-heart ratio and the severity and extent of perfusion abnormality. Left ventficular dilatation was seen more frequently in patients with coronary disease than in those without, and it correlated with the extent of thallium perfusion abnormality.
