Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the prognostic value of stress echocardiography as a screening exam in peri- or [ Time Frame: 2 and 5 year follow up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • post menopausal women with an intermediate pre-test likelihood of coronary artery disease [ Time Frame: End of study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • to identify patients at higher risk of experiencing future cardiac events. [ Time Frame: End of Study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate the prognostic value of exercise ECG testing for identifying patients with cardiac events during follow-up. [ Time Frame: End of Study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine the value of exercise induced changes in levels of cardiac peptides (atrial natriuretic peptide and brain natriuretic peptide) in identifying patients with cardiac events during follow-up. [ Time Frame: End of Study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine the value of brachial artery reactivity for identifying patients with cardiac events during follow-up. [ Time Frame: End of Study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine the relative values of exercise echocardiography, exercise ECG testing, cardiac peptides and brachial artery reactivity for identifying patients at risk of cardiac events. [ Time Frame: End of Study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine the cost-effectiveness of using stress echocardiography in screening peri- and post-menopausal women at intermediate risk for coronary artery disease. [ Time Frame: End of Study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
