Description:

This clinical guideline partially updates recommendation 1.2 for the use of myocardial perfusion scintigraphy for the diagnosis and management of angina and myocardial infarction from NICE technology appraisal guidance 73. It offers evidence-based advice on the care and treatment of adults diagnosed with stable angina.
 
Stable angina is usually caused by coronary heart disease, a condition in which blood vessels in the heart become narrowed by a build up of fat. This reduces the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. The most common symptom of stable angina is pain or a feeling of discomfort or tightness in the chest, which can often spread to the jaw, back, shoulders and arms.
