Score another for electron-beam tomography (EBCT). The premium-end form of CT has been judged as effective in the detection of coronary artery disease as treadmill tests-with the added advantage of avoiding the stress to the body. University of Michigan researchers pooled data from nine studies, revealing that the two techniques have similar levels of reliability but finding that EBT is faster, easier, and more consistent in diagnosing CAD. The Michigan researchers drew their conclusions from a meta-analysis of the nine studies that used EBT as a diagnostic test, with coronary angiography as the reference standard.
