Non-invasive quantification of coronary (myocardial) flow reserve
We are using three non-invasive techniques to quantify coronary\r\n (myocardial) flow reserve in hypertensive patients, patients with diabetes\r\n and in women with chest pain syndromes. In addition to studying\r\n myocardial flow reserve in these patients, we are comparing two new\r\n techniques (split-dose Tl-201 myocardial SPECT imaging and contrast\r\n echocardiography to the gold standard non-invasive method, PET Rb-82\r\n flow imaging.
