in patients with low-risk treadmill scores.
4 years of follow-up, the combined rate of cardiovascular death, nonfatal MI, or revascularization more than 4 weeks after myocardial perfusion imaging
was 32% in patients with at least 10% left ventricular ischemia on their presenting SPECT study, 14% in those with l%-9% ischemia, and 8% in those with no ischemia.
