#Coronary artery disease prediction in women and men using chest pain characteristics and risk factors: an observational study in outpatient clinics

..Twenty-four women (5%) and 75 men (15%) were diagnosed with coronary artery disease by invasive coronary angiography or CT angiography during regular care follow-up. Elastic net regression was performed to assess which chest pain characteristics and risk factors were of diagnostic value. The overall model selected age, provocation by temperature or stress, relief at rest and functional class as determinants and was accurate in both … Continue reading #Coronary artery disease prediction in women and men using chest pain characteristics and risk factors: an observational study in outpatient clinics
