Prognostic Value of Rb-82 PET Myocardial Perfusion Imaging
The physician would like to see if nuclear cardiac stress tests can predict cardiac health. For example, if a patient has an abnormal stress test, is he or she more likely to have cardiac problems in the future?
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Retrospective
- correlate scan findings with clinical outcomes [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Patients will complete one questionnaire over the phone.
|Study Start Date:||November 2011|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||November 2015|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||November 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
pts who have had Rb-82 PET myocardial perfusion imaging
Eligible patients will have had Rb-82 PET myocardial perfusion imaging at MSKCC, 2008 - 2011. Patients will complete one questionnaire over the phone.
Patients will complete one questionnaire over the phone. We will ask patients to describe their cardiac history since Rb-82 PET (chest pain, shortness of breath, cardiac catheterization, and heart attack). This information will be correlated to the scan results and other relevant information in the patient's medical record.
