ischemia and no obstructive coronary artery disease (INOCA). Dr Han Zhang and collogues from Shanghai Tenth People’s Hospital, Tongji University School of Medicine and University of Bern, aimed to explore the prognostic potential of CZT SPECT in INOCA patients. A retrospective analysis of 118 INOCA patients, with 15 month follow up, was conducted with MACE endpoint, CZT MPI SPECT and Myocardial Flow.
- The preliminary results demonstrated that quantitative analysis on CZT SPECT provides prognostic value for INOCA patients, which may allow the stratification for early prevention and intervention.
- SPECT MFR (CFR) and SPECT MBF provide additional prognostic information which may reclassify ~40% of INOCA patients in this study.
