Ischemic heart disease (IHD) remains a major public health burden worldwide. It is estimated that one third of adults in the United States has some form of IHD, including more than 17 million with coronary artery disease (CAD) and nearly 10 million with angina pectoris . Nevertheless, the detection of myocardial ischemia in patients with presumed CAD remains a challenge in contemporary practice.
