Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Timothy M. Bateman, Aspire Foundation
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00976053
First received: September 11, 2009
Last updated: October 30, 2014
Last verified: October 2014
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to compare pharmacologic stress myocardial perfusion PET with pharmacologic stress myocardial perfusion SPECT in a near-simultaneous, head-to-head comparison in the same patient. The investigators hypothesize that pharmacologic stress myocardial perfusion PET will prove superior to pharmacologic stress myocardial perfusion SPECT as a first-line diagnostic test for higher-risk patients with known coronary artery disease (CAD) who present with symptoms consistent with possible worsening of their CAD.

Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary Artery Disease Procedure: Myocardial perfusion imaging Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
Official Title: Clinical Effectiveness of Pharmacologic Stress Radionuclide Myocardial Perfusion Imaging as a Guide to Management of Patients With Known CAD: Comparison of Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
