Detection of Ischemia in Asymptomatic Diabetics - DIAD


Patients with diabetes mellitus are at high risk for cardiovascular events, and are known to be at high risk for silent ischemia. Earlier studies have demonstrated that inducible ischemia is an independent predictor of adverse diabetic outcomes in diabetic patients. The DIAD study sought to randomize diabetic patients to screening with myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) or no screening.
