Coronary artery disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality for women in North America and Europe. Given the significance of coronary disease as a public health problem among women, accurate diagnosis of this condition is of great importance. Several noninvasive testing modalities are available for the diagnosis of coronary heart disease. An understanding of gender-based differences related to noninvasive cardiac testing is useful in order to optimally utilize these tests and improve detection and clinical outcomes in women.
