This study compares side-by-side exercise electrocardiography and dobutamine echocardiography with an invasively assessed index of myocardial flow (pressure-derived myocardial fractional flow reserve). The data show that ST-segment depression > or = 0.1 mV and the occurrence of new wall motion abnormalities during dobutamine infusion reflect a similar impairment of myocardial blood flow.
