Abstract
Considerable controversy surrounds the clinical value of exercise stress testing, particularly in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD). A review of recent literature indicates that a critical evaluation of the clinical importance of exercise stress testing continues. The paper presents current applications and limitations of exercise stress testing in CAD, and examines the predictive accuracy of the diagnostic approach.
