Outline of Material
The material in this presentation covers the results and conclusions from a systematic comparative effectiveness review entitled Noninvasive Technologies for Diagnosis of CAD in Women. It begins with an introduction to coronary artery disease (CAD) and a description of the various noninvasive technologies currently available for diagnosing CAD in women. It also covers methods used to plan and execute the systematic review, clinically important questions the review sought to answer, results of the review, evidence-based conclusions about the relative accuracy and safety of the various noninvasive technologies for diagnosing CAD, gaps in knowledge, and the future research needs uncovered by the systematic review.
