There are limited data on the impact of the imaging protocol (single-day stress-rest, SD, vs. dual-day, DD) on the change in left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) (post-stress-rest) in relation to ischemia and on outcome. Methods. Using propensity score matching procedure, 490 of 1121 patients with known CAD, undergoing a
