Complementary Roles of Computed Tomography and Myocardial Perfusion Single PHoton Emission Computed Tomography

ByDaniel S Berman, Leslee J Shaw, Alan Rozanski

This book has been dedicated to the application of cardiac

computed tomography (CT). However, a critical link to its

effective implementation is the development of patient

management strategies that integrate CT with conventional

cardiac imaging. The focus of this chapter is on the comple-

mentary roles of CT and stress ischemia testing with

myocardial perfusion single photon emission computed

tomography (SPECT, SPECT MPI).
