Detailed Description:

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.
