Comparison of Radiation Doses and Best-Practice Use for Myocardial Perfusion Imaging in US and Non-US Laboratories

As reported in JAMA: This study compares actual myocardial perfusion imaging practice and radiation doses in US and non-US laboratories and identifies opportunities to improve radiation doses in the United States. Myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) is integral to the diagnosis and management of known or suspected coronary artery disease and is therefore performed on millions…
