Cardiac Testing

Testing and procedures for cardiovascular disease carry both benefits and risks.

On this website, I try to critically evaluate which tests you should definitely consider but also which tests are useless and which are dangerous.

Should you get an annual Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG)?

Which is better, a stress test or a CT angiogram to detect coronary disease in patients with stable chest pain?



Please leave your comments. The skeptical cardiologist loves feedback. He reads all and replies to all that warrant a reply.
