ABSTRACT
The article reports that in patients with type 2 diabetes who were asymptomatic for coronary artery disease (CAD), screening with myocardial perfusion imaging did not reduce risk for cardiac events. This was the conclusion of a study conducted by Mount Sinai School of Medicine in the U.S. and Canada in 1123 patients of 50 to 75 years of age who had type 2 diabetes diagnosed at 30 years of age, with no symptomatic or previously recognized CAD, and no history of ketoacidosis.
