Nature of the research:
Analaysis of PET data (quantitative analysis of global and regional myocardial perfusion and coronary flow reserve). Analysis of clinical follow up data.

Fields of study:
nuclear medicine cardiology

Background / introduction
Prospective database of >1200 patients referred for ischemia analyis at Isala Heart Centre
Research question / problem definition
Clinical outcome and gender differences in perfusionin patients with atrial fibrillation in patients with a "normal" PET scintigraphy.
Collection of clinical data from the hospital database using dedicated software programs like CTcue.
Propensity score matching of patients with sinus rhythm and atrial fibrillation.
Analysis of data.
Report (preferably a scientific paper).
