DSE has indications similar to pharmacologic perfusion imaging with comparable sensitivity, but possibly increased specificity. Preoperative dipyridamole thallium perfusion imaging, radionuclide ventriculography, ambulatory EKG, and DSE are all able to predict adverse outcomes in with the relative risk for DSE likely to be slightly, but not significantly, greater than the other studies. For patients with poor acoustic windows due to body habitus or severe lung disease, myocardial contrast agents are now available to improve imaging.
