ABSTRACT
The article cites a research which shows a progressive decrease in the frequency and severity of abnormal stress-rest single-photon emission computer tomography-myocardial perfusion imaging (SPECT-MPI) studies between 1991 and 2009, citing further details on the study findings.

    BACKGROUND: Recently, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scanning was described as a non-invasive technique to assess fundic accommodation. However, in contrast with the barostat, no intragastric distending force is applied during SPECT scanning. We hypothesised that in the...
