16) Results from a recent multicenter trial involving 9 hospitals in 7 countries, the CORE 64 study, yielded an overall sensitivity of 85%, specificity of 90%, and a negative predictive value of 83% for stenoses >50% (17) using coronary arteriography as the reference standard.
The study consisted of 520 patients (379 men and 141 women) who underwent coronary arteriography for the first time.

2] In this study, Sox and colleagues studied patients from four different patient populations: 289 self-referred patients of an HMO (self-referral group 2), 404 self-referred patients at a Department of Veterans Affairs hospital (self-referral group 1), 211 patients admitted to Stanford for coronary arteriography (referral group 1); and 170 patients referred for coronary arteriography to either Stanford or its affiliated Department of Veterans Affairs hospital (referral group 2).

Observation indices: Coronary arteriography was performed to determine the characteristics of lesions in the two groups, including the length of hospital stay, average time from admission to balloon dilatation, number of patients implanted with more than two stents during primary PCI, second PCI during hospitalization, angina after infarction, re-infarction, acute and subacute thrombosis stent, severe arrhythmia, cardiac function Killip class III/IV and cardiogenic shock, 30-day mortality rate,
