Typical symptoms suggestive of CAD may include:

  • Chest discomfort, tightness, pain, or pressure
  • Shortness of breath

Atypical symptoms suggestive of CAD may include:

  • Tightness or pressure in the throat, jaw, shoulder, abdomen, back, or arm
  • Squeezing, heaviness, or burning sensation in the upper body
  • Abdominal discomfort or fullness
  • Indigestion or heartburn
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness or light-headedness
  • Palpitations or awareness of heartbeat

(To be suggestive of obstructive CAD*, these atypical symptoms should be concurrent with at least one CAD risk factor. Some examples of CAD risk factors include high cholesterol, hypertension, family history, smoking, post-menopausal, morbid obesity, and known non-cardiac vascular disease.)

The Corus CAD test is NOT intended for patients who:

  • Have a history of obstructive CAD
