Noninvasive Technologies for Diagnosing Coronary Artery Disease in Women
Summary: Accuracy of NITs Versus Coronary Angiography in Diagnosing CAD in Women With No Known CAD
This slide summarizes the sensitivities and specificities of noninvasive technologies (NITs) versus coronary angiography for diagnosing coronary artery disease (CAD) in women with no known CAD. The summary sensitivity and specificity values of CMR, coronary CTA, ECHO, SPECT, and ECG were compared with coronary angiography and were calculated for all studies included in the review, as well as for the subset of good-quality studies alone.
CMR = cardiac magnetic resonance imaging; CTA = computed tomography angiography; ECG = electrocardiography; ECHO = echocardiography; SPECT = single photon emission computed tomography
Keywords: accuracy | CAD | diagnosis | noninvasive technologies | sensitivity | specificity | women | coronary artery disease
