Abstract

Objective: Similar effects can be achieved during stress myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) using pharmacological agents to create cardiac stress for patients who are unable to exercise. In our study, we aimed to show the hemodynamic changes and adverse effects caused by adenosine and to compare the results with dipyridamole stress MPS.
