Research Study Summary
PROspective Multi-center Imaging Study for Evaluation of Chest Pain (PROMISE). A study to see which first step heart imaging test leads to better future outcomes 1) special CTA scanning to see heart artery structure, 2) heart stress tests to measure heart artery function.
The purpose of this study is to compare different, routinely-performed heart tests, such as exercise electrocardiogram (ECG), stress echocardiogram (echo), or stress nuclear test, and coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA), in identifying heart disease and reducing future heart problems.
Patient Inclusion Criteria:
Symptomatic subjects without known coronary artery disease (CAD) for whom a non-emergent, noninvasive cardiovascular diagnostic test for CAD is planned.
Patient Exclusion Criteria:
Diagnosed or suspected acute coronary syndrome; known coronary artery disease; other heart disease; recent cardiovascular evaluation, angio or stress tests (<12 months); unable to have a CTA due to contra-indication to radiation exposure, beta blockers or contrast agents; unable to consent or participate in follow up.
