D. All of the above
5. Why are Tc-99m tracers the agent of choice for MPI in women
A. Artifacts associated with breast attenuation are reduced
B. Faster imaging times reduce patient motion

D. A and C
6. ____________________ is a measure of how much of the myocardium is involved with disease
A. Reversibility
B. Extent
C. Severity
D. Redistribution
7. A Ejection Fraction (EF) value of _____________ is predictive of events resulting in death
A. >45%
B. <55%
C. <45%
D. EF is not predictive of events resulting in death
8. Women with a mildly abnormal scan …

B. Have an intermediate risk of myocardial infarction (MI) and cardiac death (CD)
C. Should have a cardiac catheterization
D. Have a < 1% cardiac event risk
9. True or False
Frequently diabetic patients do not experience typical symptoms associated with myocardial
infarction (MI) because they do not feel the pain, they have “silent” blunted ischemic pain.

B. Hypertension
C. C-reactive protein (CRP)
D. Family history of early coronary disease
