Abstract: Overall time savings and time savings stratified by operational ability (number of staff, number of SPECT cameras, hours of operation) translate to a more efficient utilization of laboratory resources when using regadenoson compared to adenosine and dipyridamole. Regadenoson is the most efficient pharmacologic stress agent compared to adenosine and dipyridamole.

“…Our switch to dipyridamole did not result in a meaningful increase in labor and materials. Previous studies estimated that the difference in total time to perform MPI could be up to 15 minutes longer when using dipyridamole . Locations without 24‐hour pharmacy services may have more barriers to implementation due to the weight‐based dosing, sterile compounding, and infusion devices required by dipyridamole.…”

“…Previous studies estimated that the difference in total time to perform MPI could be up to 15 minutes longer when using dipyridamole. 13 Locations without 24-hour pharmacy services may have more barriers to implementation due to the weight-based dosing, sterile compounding, and infusion devices required by dipyridamole. A prospective comparison in a randomized controlled trial to control for these factors would be of benefit.…”

“…Observed benefits of regadenoson are consistent with and supplement findings from previous studies that have collectively demonstrated its potential to create more efficient/effective diagnosis for several reasons, including accurate stress testing, better use of patient time, and use of a more streamlined stress protocol. [7][8][9][10][11] Friedman et al fielded an online survey to nuclear medicine technologists (n = 141) from cardiovascular imaging centers in the US to characterize regadenoson's laboratory efficiency relative to adenosine and dipyridamole. 8 Regadenoson was associated with the shortest total time for MPI testing, as well as time from PSA administration to the start of imaging and to adverse event management, thereby offering the most operational efficiency.…”

“…[ 5 6 7 ] Its advantages over nonselective agonists include less side effects,[ 8 ] quick injection, a fixed dose of 400 μg independent of patient's weight,[ 9 ] and a prompt hyperemic response,[ 6 ] which translates into the higher efficiency of use and patient and clinician satisfaction. [ 10 11 ] Several studies have explored the relative performances of Dip and Reg in the frame of myocardial perfusion positron emission tomography (PET) using 82 Rb or 13 N-ammonia. Most studies concluded to the equivalency of the results obtained with both vasodilator agents in terms of total perfusion deficit and left ventricular function,[ 12 ] as well as absolute myocardial blood flow and flow reserve.…”
