|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||PET Myocardial Perfusion Imaging With CT Angiography and Measurement of Coronary Flow Reserve: A Prospective Study of Effectiveness, Impact on Patient Management, Prognostic Value, and Downstream Costs|
|Study Start Date:||February 2008|
|Study Completion Date:||May 2011|
|Primary Completion Date:||May 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The purpose of this research is to determine how PET myocardial perfusion imaging involving CT angiography and measurement of coronary flow reserve affects patient care. This research will also compare the effectiveness of these scans to other similar tests and compare the cost-effectiveness of these scans to other similar tests over time.
