Independent and incremental prognostic value of left ventricular ejection fraction determined by stress gated rubidium 82 PET imaging in patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease.
We have already demonstrated in a private cardiology practice, that the routine use of PET in properly selected patients results in a 50% reduction in the use of coronary arteriography and bypass surgery with improved clinical outcomes for the patient, and a 25% reduction in coronary disease management costs for third party payors, using a Positron PET system and Bracco Rubidium 82 infusion system.
