Abstract

Because of constraints on the costs of providing medical care, cardiologists in the future will find themselves challenged to provide care for their patients in the most cost-effective manner possible. Although stress-echocardiography has been shown to compare favorably with other tests in diagnostic accuracy, data on cost-effectiveness are scarce. In this article, general concepts of cost-effectiveness as they relate to stress- echocardiography are reviewed and the available literature is summarized. Although definitive data are lacking, there is evidence to suggest that stress-echocardiography may prove to be cost-effective in several clinical situations.
