Coronary angiography is an invasive diagnostic imaging technique in which a catheter is threaded through the blood vessels to the arteries around the heart so that a contrast medium can be injected to make the area visible by X-ray. Angiography may not be available at small, rural hospitals, he said.

"If the early strategy is better than delayed in the high risk patients then it might be appropriate to bypass small hospitals that lack invasive facilities and take those patients directly to an invasive center," he said.
