Abstract

The knowledge about quality control and the development of quality initiatives provide techniques for the optimal performance of SPECT imaging and therefore maximize the clinical value of this important non-invasive technique. Given the increasing volume in cardiac imaging and its related expense, it is critical to provide clinically relevant data and do so in a cost-effective manner. This section will focus on the clinical implications of SPECT myocardial perfusion imaging. We will review the evaluation of multiple patient populations including those with suspected coronary artery disease, risk stratification, preoperative risk assessment, evaluation of therapy in patients with known coronary disease, risk stratification of the diabetic patient, assessment of women and additional unique patient cohorts. The body of evidence supporting each of these indications is very strong and will be reviewed.
