Angina, the most common form of stable coronary heart disease (CHD), is diagnosed based on characteristic complaints, detecting transient myocardial ischemia during functional stress tests, and morphology data on epicardial coronary arteries. Determining the pretest probability of disease and knowing the resolution of instrumental study methods helps select an optimal diagnostic algorithm, which would take into account features of a specific patient.
