RESULTS: Global P and T expected utilities when performing DSE 1 were 0.84 and 0.89, respectively for positive viability; 0.85 and 0.82, respectively; and for negative viability 0.83 and 0.82, respectively. The expected utilities with the decision of performing a DSE 2 to Fp were 0.74 and 0.76, respectively (viability was detected in 66% of P and in 58% of T) and 0.47 and 0.45, respectively, as applied to Fn.
CONCLUSIONS: Low dose DSE results in high clinical utility by finding viable or scar myocardium before CABG as well as when discordant results are found in follow-up, particularly with Fp.
