ECG in stress testing: child of a lesser diagnostic god?

When new technologies are added to the previously existing ones, the latter can be prematurely discarded and judged obsolete not only on the basis of rational scientific facts, but also on irrational trends. Old techniques, like electrocardiography, suffer from diagnostic ambiguities that can be solved by combination with a cardiac imaging technique, like stress echocardiography. ECG monitoring during all forms of stress testing can still offer surprising dividends for a better understanding of the complex physiology of coronary artery disease, a better clinical characterization of patients with microvascular angina, and may serve as an important adjunct marker to cardiac imaging techniques.
