    BACKGROUND: Visual assessment of wall motion abnormalities (WMA) by 2-dimensional echocardiography (2DE) is the most semi-quantitative method used to detect coronary artery disease (CAD), but it carries many limitations. Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) overcomes these limitations and...

    Purpose: CT angiography (CTA) can rule out significant stenoses with a very high reliability, whereas its ability to confirm significant stenoses is suboptimal. In contrast, measurements of myocardial blood flow (MBF) provide information on the haemodynamic consequences of stenoses. Therefore, a...
