A Study to See if MPI SPECT Phase Analysis Can Detect Varying Levels of Changes in Heart Rhythm Patterns
Tab Title Description
Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
- Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
- Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
- Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.

About this study
The purpose of this study is to determine if MPI SPECT phase analysis can detect varying degrees of abnormal heart rhythm between patients with normal coronary artery circulation, ischemia (poor blood circulation), and infarct (area of dead tissue) from loss of circulation.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- At least 18 years of age
- Have been clinically referred for a stress MPI
- Are able to give consent
- Pediatric patients
- Those who refuse to give consent
- Those that have contraindications for MPI stress testing as determined by the Nuclear laboratory guidelines (for instance patients with unstable angina or those unable to remain still for MPI imaging)
- If a patient undergoes a second stress test within a year, only one study will be utilized in the analysis (unique patients)
