A Study To Determine If There Are Differences In Blood Flow To The Heart In Patients With Chest Pain


Seeking men and women 18 years and older who have been referred for a procedure called a Coronary angiography to look at blockages in the coronary arteries


We are trying to determine better ways to diagnose individuals who may have pain related to blockages of the coronary arteries, and whether certain tests can help in this process.

What we're hoping for

To determine if blood flow to the heart muscle is lower in patients with a condition called microvascular angina, and if this relates to lower blood vessel function.
