well ideally speaking angiogram is gold standard . you can opt fot CT ANGIO BEFORE CORONARY INVASIVE ANGIOGRAM . YES IT IS ASSOCIATED WITH LITTLE DISCOMFORT BUT NORMALY IS SAFE PROVIDED IN EXPERT HANDS . GOOD LUCK

My father is 75 years old. He had a chest pain a week back and went to a normal clinic, where they took an ECG and said there is a slight variation in the ecg report, and asked him to go to a cardiologist with the report. But my dad went to his cardiologist only after 4 days. They took an echo test and said he has had an attack, the troponin T was 4.67. then an angiogram said there is a block. but the consulting doctor said that administering medicine is enough becuase he has not been taking medicines. He also said there is no need of angioplasty. Please comment on the doctors remarks please.

I often have an irregular heartbeat during the course of the day (5 to 6 times). I can feel gas moving around in my system almost everytime this occurs. I often have rapid heartbeats which are relieved by passing . I was hospitalized before because I thought tI was having a heart attack but after thorough testing (ekg, ultrasound, stress test, wearing a heart monitor at home) they found nothing. What could be a possible avenue that I can pursue to finally get rid of this or at least be able to treat it.
