Considerable interest has focused on reducing the amount of radioactive isotope used during myocardial perfusion imaging as most recently raised yet again in the recently released [1] 2018 “ASNC Imaging Guidelines: Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) Myocardial Perfusion Imaging—Instrumentation, Acquisition, Processing, and Interpretation,” endorsed by the SNMMI. In these guidelines the authors recommend the utilization of “Stress-First/Stress-Only Imaging.” This editorial is designed to address three of the most common misperceptions currently plaguing Nuclear Cardiology & Nuclear Medicine.
