Let's not forget non-invasive medicine. Nuclear cardiology has made significant inroads in diagnosis and prognosis, with minimal risk.

I generally support Syd's preference for medical prevention and treatment of heart problems 

before resorting to invasive procedures. But I warn??against "running like hell" 

if an interventionalist cardiologist advises catheterization. Radiation is not??the important risk then. 

It??is often done without first doing adequate adrenalin blockage (in all cases), 

exercise (depending on symptoms) and diet (individually tailored). 

But if enzymes are up, don't wait!
