OBJECTIVES This study compared the accuracy and cost implications of using exercise echocardiography and exercise electrocardiography for detection of coronary artery disease in women. BACKGROUND The specificity of exercise electrocardiography in women is lower than in men. Exercise echocardiography accurately identifies coronary artery disease in women, but its utility in place of exercise electrocardiography is unclear. METHODS One hundred sixty-one women without a previous Q wave… CONTINUE READING
