Open to people ages 18 years and up

  • The subject is a man or woman ≥18 years of age.
  • The subject has read, signed, and dated an informed consent form (ICF) prior to any study procedures being performed.
  • At the time of enrolment, the subject has been scheduled via written documentation to undergo an ICA for the assessment of CAD.
  • The subject has undergone a clinically indicated SPECT OR the patient is willing to undergo SPECT MPI for the purposes of the clinical study.
  • The subject is male or is a nonpregnant, nonlactating female who is either surgically sterile or is post-menopausal.
  • The subject is able and willing to comply with all study procedures as described in the protocol.

You CAN'T join if...

  • Patients who are pregnant, may possibly be pregnant, or wish (including their partners) to become pregnant during the study period, or are lactating.
  • Patients who are unable to undergo all of the imaging procedures.
  • Patients who have an established diagnosis of CAD as confirmed by any of the following:
  • Previous myocardial infarction (MI);
  • Previous cardiac catheter angiography showing ≥50% stenosis;
  • Previous coronary revascularisation, such as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), thrombolysis or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) placement.
  • Patients incapable of undergoing either exercise or pharmacological cardiac stress testing.
  • Patients who have a current illness or pathology that, in the opinion of the investigator, would pose a significant safety risk for the patient during cardiac stress testing.
  • Documented history of heart failure and/or cardiomyopathy and/or prior LV ejection fraction (LVEF) <50%).
  • Patients scheduled for or planning to undergo any cardiac interventional procedures between enrolment and ICA.
  • Patients undergoing evaluation for heart transplantation or with history of heart transplantation.
  • Patients enrolled in another clinical study within the 30 days prior to being enrolled in this study or scheduled to participate in another clinical study during the 7-day follow-up period of this study.
