Context: Deep convolutional neural networks trained with a large multicenter population may provide improved prediction of per-patient and per-vessel coronary artery disease from single-photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion imaging (SPECT MPI).

Methods and Results: This study evaluated the automatic prediction of obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) from SPECT MPI by deep learning as compared with total perfusion deficit (TPD). In this retrospective study,...
