WIN LEI, Yadanar  and  JALDIN, Juan Pablo. Importance of diagnostic coronary arteries testing in asymptomatic myocardial ischemia . Gac Med Bol [online]. 2019, vol.42, n.2, pp.153-158. ISSN 1012-2966.

In Myanmar, with recent advances on cardiac intervention, and diagnostic capability, we discuss different techniques on proper diagnosis of different types of coronary disease. We reviewed a case with one known vessel disease diagnosed by CT coronary arteries and then, were found to be two vessels disease when diagnostic cardiac catheterization was done. We discussed the uses and the limitations of various cardiac tests, including Coronary CT angiography (CCTA), Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (cMRI), Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization (CC), Multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT) via a literature review.

Keywords : coronary artery disease; coronay stenosis; coronary angiography; methods.
