Abstract

Background: Echocardiography and myocardial scintigraphy associated with dobutamine stress are used for assessing risk in coronary artery disease. We compared the accuracy of the two modalities applied simultaneously for predicting long-term cardiac mortality in normotensive and hypertensive patients. Methods: Three hundred and fifty-one consecutive patients underwent dobutamine stress with simultaneous echocardiography and 99mTc- sestamibi single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). Fifty patients underwent early (
