Effective and Efficient Cardiac Testing for Chest Pain

Friday, November 24
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

After the history and examination, cardiac testing is often required to further evaluate chest pain. There is an array of different cardiac testing options, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Choosing the correct testing approach requires an understanding of the patient and the limitations of testing in looking for underlying coronary artery disease. I will be presenting a case-based approach to CAD testing and will also discuss the major pitfalls in dealing with the results such as the false positive test and the false negative test.
