Lexiscan (regadenoson injection, from Astellas), a pharmacologic stress agent, is now available for use in radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) for patients unable to undergo adequate exercise stress.

Lexiscan, an A2A adenosine receptor agonist, produces coronary vasodilation and increases coronary blood flow to help detect and characterize coronary artery disease (CAD).
