Background: With the evaluation of focal epicardial coronary stenosis and non-obstructive
atherosclerosis, the cardiac scans play a significant role in diagnosing coronary artery disease
(CAD). Moreover, the advancements in the imaging techniques leading to improved risk assessment
and timely therapies help in early diagnosis of CAD with greater accuracy.
Aims: To evaluate the role of cardiac scan in diagnosing CAD.
Methods: Recruited 100 individuals without any history of CAD that refers to the assessment of
suspected angina, conducted the prospective study. Electrocardiogram (ECG) findings assisted in
the evaluation of left bundle branch blockage, abnormalities of ST-segment, and pathological Q
Results: The results depicted negative N.M findings among 38 respondents; whereas, ischemia and
myocardial infarctions were diagnosed in 26% and 19% of the respondents, respectively. The majority
of the males (59) were positive in contrast to 37 females with positive results. Similarly, 24
respondents were presented with mild dilated left atria (LA), 37 respondents suffered from impaired
relaxation pattern of left ventricular (LV) diastolic filling; while, 40 of the respondents had
normal global LV systolic function.
Conclusion: The study results have concluded that non-invasive, low-risk, and cost-effective technique
like ECG is an important beneficial advancement in the diagnosis of CAD.
