Dr. Bober presents the current practice of coronary revascularization and how cardiac PET stress testing with absolute flow is the best modality to improve patient outcomes. With published studies and illustrative cases, he explains why and how cardiac PET provides critical data not available with other cardiac evaluations or imaging studies.
