AIMS Patients attending hospital with suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS), non-diagnostic electrocardiogram (ECG), and negative troponin present a diagnostic dilemma for admitting physicians. We sought to determine the clinical and economic impact of stress echocardiography (SEcho) when compared with exercise ECG (ExECG) in the assessment of these patients. METHODS AND RESULTS Following pre-test assessment by (Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction) TIMI score, patients were randomized to… CONTINUE READING
