The value of the exercise-electrocardiography test in detecting coronary artery disease in women is limited. Recently, the high dose dipyridamole-echocardiography test (two-dimensional echocardiographic monitoring during intravenous dipyridamole infusion, up to 0.84 mg/kg body weight over 10 min) was proposed as an alternative to exercise testing for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. To establish the diagnostic usefulness of the exercise-electrocardiography and dipyridamole… CONTINUE READING
