Abstract

Aim: Individuals with type 2 diabetes are at high risk for cardiovascular events; however, a modality that could reduce risk has not been fully evaluated. We examined the annual incidence rate of cardiovascular events in asymptomatic Japanese diabetic patients who underwent gated myocardial perfusion single-photon computed tomography (SPECT). Methods: Asymptomatic patients (n=485) aged ≥50 years and with either a maximal carotid artery intima-media thickness of ≥ 1.1 mm, or urinary albumin ≥30 mg/g creatinine, or at least two of abdominal obesity, low HDL cholesterol, high triglyceride levels and hypertension were evaluated at 50 institutions using gated SPECT with the stress-rest protocol and were followed up for three years. In the patients with summed stress scores (SSS) of ≥9, the initial high cardiovascular incidence rate in the first year declined significantly (p
