Very high coronary calcium score unmasks obstructive coronary artery disease in patients with normal SPECT MPI.


Ghadri, J R; Pazhenkottil, A P; Nkoulou, R N; Goetti, R; Buechel, R R; Husmann, L; Herzog, B A; Wolfrum, M; Wyss, C A; Templin, C; Kaufmann, P A (2011). Very high coronary calcium score unmasks obstructive coronary artery disease in patients with normal SPECT MPI. Heart, 97(12):998-1003.

Abstract

In patients with normal SPECT MPI, a CAC >1000 confers a high diagnostic added value for detecting CAD. This is not solely based on unmasking balanced ischaemia due to epicardial 3-VD, as it occurred predominantly in patients with 1-VD and 2-VD.
