Regional wall motion abnormality (RWMA) is considered a sensitive and specific marker of ischemia during stress echocardiography (SE). However, ischemia is a multifaceted entity associated with either coronary artery disease (CAD) or angina with normal coronary arteries (ANOCA), a distinction difficult to make using a single sign. We aimed to evaluate the diagnostic potential of the ABCDE-SE protocol for CAD detection.
