What type of test/procedure is the most accurate for finding heart/vasc ?

What type of test/procedure is the most accurate for finding heart/vasc. problems? I ve heard that the ECG and the Echo can sometimes miss a problem with the heart. What should one do to find out for sure if there is an issue with the heart, or any of the arteries and blood vessels?
