With coronary heart disease the leading cause of death in women over the age of 50, the Society for Women's Health Research and the Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) today reminded women of the diagnostic technology available that can detect heart disease while it is treatable, and released a fact sheet to help patients and their families better understand the noninvasive diagnostic technologies that can be used to help detect coronary disease.

Advances in noninvasive cardiac imaging have enhanced almost every aspect of cardiac care. New imaging technology enables doctors to see the heart in incredible detail that was not possible even a decade ago. The use of the right cardiac scan at the right time has saved lives, reduced hospital stays, returned people to work more quickly, kept families together and significantly lowered health care costs.

While angiograms -- an invasive procedure that involves inserting a guide wire and catheter into the groin -- is the most common means of diagnosing heart disease, non-invasive medical imaging's role in cardiology, such as echocardiography, that takes "moving pictures" of the heart with sound waves, continues to dramatically change the way patients are diagnosed and treated.

The fact sheet released today provides information on echocardiography,
