Should we screen for coronary artery disease in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus?
Probably not. Screening for coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with type 2 diabetes using myocardial perfusion imaging does not improve outcomes. In patients with type 2 diabetes and asymptomatic stable CAD, percutaneous interventions and medical therapy do not decrease long-term mortality rates compared with medical management alone (SOR: B, RCTs).
