Previous attempts by our laboratory to diagnose coronary artery disease by means of single noninvasive measures have had only limited success. It has been our experience that abnormalities frequently observed in coronary artery disease patients (such as positive exercise tests) are not uncommon in patients with chest pain syndromes and normal coronary arteriograms; therefore, the presence of such abnormalities alone does not allow the clinician to diagnose coronary artery disease with a high degree of confidence. Similarly, the absence of these abnormalities does not exclude the disease. To evaluate more definitively the role of various noninvasive measure in diagnosing coronary
