Abstract

Objective: Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy (MPS) is a diagnostic tool commonly used to detect significant coronary lesion. However equivocal, false negative or positive results can be yielded. Controversial findings regarding the role of ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) in MPS evaluation persist. The aim of the present study was to examine the role of serum IMA in the assessment of MPS results.
