Brief Summary:
The purpose of this clinical research study is determine if patients with diabetes that have undergone previous opening of a heart blockage may have a blockage that is not causing any symptoms that may be detected by imaging with Cardiolite.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate symptom-free heart blockages that develop following initial opening in patients with Type II diabetes mellitus based on Cardiolite imaging

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine how often symptom-free heart blockages occur 5-6 months after opening in patients with Type II diabetes mellitus
  2. Examine the relative value of ejection fraction, summed stress, rest, and difference MPI scores for identifying patients with cardiac events during 18 month follow-up.
  3. Compare patient hospital and out-patient cost for cardiac care for each group of patients (MPI versus standard care).
