Abstract

To directly compare the stressor capabilities of adenosine and high-dose dobutamine/atropine using first pass myocardial perfusion magnetic resonance imaging. Fourty-one patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease underwent cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) perfusion imaging at 1.5 Tesla on two consecutive days prior to invasive coronary angiography. On day 1 a standard CMR perfusion protocol during adenosine stress was carried out (adenosine infusion with 140 μg/kg/min, 0.1 mmol/kg Gd-DTPA). On day 2, the identical CMR perfusion sequence was repeated during a standard high-dose dobutamine/atropine stress protocol at rest and during target heart rate (85% of maximum age-predicted heart rate). Stress-inducible perfusion deficits were evaluated visually regarding presence and transmural extent. Quantitative coronary angiography served as the reference standard with significant stenosis defined as ≥50% luminal diameter reduction. Twenty-five patients (61%) had significant coronary stenoses. Adenosine and dobutamine stress CMR perfusion imaging resulted in an equally high sensitivity and specificity for the stenosis detection on a per patient basis (92 and 75% for both stressors, respectively). Agreement of both stressors with regard to the presence or absence of stress-inducible perfusion deficits was nearly perfect using patient- and segment based analysis (kappa 1.0 and 0.92, respectively). Adenosine and dobutamine/atropine stress CMR perfusion imaging are equally capable to identify stress inducible deficits and resulted in an almost identical extent of ischemic reactions. Though adenosine stress CMR perfusion imaging is widely employed, dobutamine stress CMR perfusion represents a valid alternative and may be particularly useful in patients with contraindications to vasodilator testing.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
