Slide: 23 of 23

What To Discuss With Your Patients (2 of 2)

Other key points that should be discussed with your patients include:

  • The relative accuracy of the noninvasive technologies (NITs) available for diagnosing coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Their physical status, health conditions, or medication use that might preclude the use of a certain diagnostic procedure
  • The potential risks associated with the various NITs available for CAD diagnosis, particularly the risk of radiation exposure in younger women
  • The possible consequences of an abnormal test result
