Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Blinded Image assessment for PET & SPECT perfusion and for interventional coronary angiography [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Diagnostic performance evaluation of CAD (PETVsSPECT) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Diagnositic performance evaluation of multivessel disease (PETvsSPECT) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Detection of CAD in subgroups: pharm stress, females and BMI>/=30 [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Image quality of rest and stress (PETvsSPECT) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Diagnostic certainty evaluation of rest and stress (PETvsSPECT) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Evaluation of reversible defect size of rest and stress (PETvsSPECT) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
  • Safety evaluation of flurpiridaz F 18 will include monitoring the number participants with adverse events (AEs), medication errors, treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs), and serious adverse events (SAEs). [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Flurpiridaz F18
Open-label study of a single injection of flurpiridaz F18 for PET MPI compared to SPECT MPI in patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease referred for coronary cathertization
Drug: Flurpiridaz F18
Injection of Flurpiridaz F18 for the purposes of PET MPI analysis

Detailed Description:
The study will assess the diagnostic efficacy (sensitivity and specificity) of Flurpiridaz F18 Injection MPI in comparison with SPECT MPI in patients with known or suspected CAD. Six hundred and seventy-two evaluable patients will be enrolled and will undergo SPECT MPI and Flurpiridaz F18 PET MPI. Patients will be considered for enrollment if they are scheduled to undergo or have undergone prior ICA without intervention (being either positive or negative for CAD).
