Eco de stress na esteira: Polêmica!
‘When a treadmill test is performed, scanning during exercise is not feasible’
European Association of Echocardiography Guidelines on Stress Echocardiography recently published in both European Heart Journal1 and European Journal of Echocardiography
Isso irritou muito o autor abaixo, vejam:
we have previously demonstrated that peak treadmill exercise echo is feasible,3–5 with greater sensitivity (92 vs. 77%) and similar specificity to post-exercise treadmill echocardiography for the detection of coronary artery disease when modern technology that should include continuous harmonic imaging acquisition is available.3 Furthermore, we also reported the value of peak treadmill exercise imaging for the detection of multivessel disease, when compared with post-exercise treadmill imaging.

Eles realmente publicaram artigo de eco de esforço em bicicleta com imagens durante o esforço!!!!
