Abstract

Coronary artery disease causing myocardial ischemia and infarction is the leading cause of death in America. Methods that can be used to diagnose and follow the response to therapy of coronary artery disease or its effect on myocardial ischemia should help control the morbidity and mortality of ischemic heart disease. The use of ECG monitoring is less sensitive and specific for ischemia than thallium (TI) imaging or the use of radionuclide angiography (RNA). In large patient populations, the findings of a positive ECG and TI or RNA study will be highly predictive for the presence of coronary artery disease, while negative test results make the disease unlikely. A combined approach to the patient with possible ischemic heart disease is presented.
