OBJECTIVES The study aim was to determine observational differences in costs of care by the coronary disease diagnostic test modality. BACKGROUND A number of diagnostic strategies are available with few data to compare the cost implications of the initial test choice. METHODS We prospectively enrolled 11,372 consecutive stable angina patients who were referred for stress myocardial perfusion tomography or cardiac catheterization. Stress imaging patients were matched by their pretest… CONTINUE READING
