How should we diagnose CAD in women?

In this video, Dr. R. R Kasliwal, Chairman - Clinical & Preventive Cardiology, Medanta – The Medicity, will explain how to diagnose coronary artery disease (CAD) in women. He informs that after doing physical examination and ECG, the best investigation is to do stress-echocardiogram. Stress echocardiogram is thread-mill-test along with echocardiography. If the doctor is still in doubt, then non-invasive CT coronary angiography can be done. Stress echocardiogram is done after investigating all the blood tests related to heart and cholesterol.
