How is a heart attack diagnosed?
Your doctor will run a series of diagnostic tests to confirm the diagnosis of a heart attack. Common tests include monitoring your heart using electrocardiography (ECG); assessing your blood for cardiac enzymes; a chest X-ray; and a coronary angiogram, which can assess any artery blockages.
