abstract

  • In a population-based sample of adults with high prevalence of diabetes, hypertension, and obesity but without overt CV disease, MPI has weak associations with clinical and physiologic determinants of cardiac function. Moreover, MPI does not provide prognostic information for CV events in this population. Though conceptually attractive as a global measure of cardiac function, MPI has limited utility in a high-risk population without clinical CV disease.
