In 1979 coronary angiography remains the standard test for diagnosing the presence and extent of coronary artery disease. Non-invasive studies such as exercise testing are only relative predictors of coronary anatomy. Therefore, to define specifically whether or not coronary disease exists in a given patient and, if present, to delineate its location, severity and the potential for bypass surgery, a coronary angiogram is the test to obtain. The purpose of this paper is to discuss indications for coronary angiography in the management of patients with established or suspected coronary disease.
