    Pioneering WOMEN Study at
    Sutter Roseville Medical Center

    Early detection of heart disease in women is challenging – the best non-invasive test for women is still unknown and the group of women who should be tested is not fully defined. To meet the challenge, Sutter Roseville Medical Center Nuclear Medicine physician Frederick Weiland, M.D., F.A.C.N.P. is serving as principal investigator for the WOMEN (What is the Optimal Method for Ischemia Evaluation in Women?) Study.

    The study's purpose is to help find the best method for detecting heart disease in women. The two stress tests that will be compared are exercise stress testing alone or exercise stress testing with heart pictures that are taken to show which blood vessels might be clogged.
