A subset of women referred to the cardiac catheterization lab for suspected myocardial infarction thought to be due to a culprit artery are found to have no obstructive coronary artery disease by angiography. The mechanism by which these women have myocardial injury varies and is not usually clear by history and angiography alone. Additional imaging, including modalities such as cardiac MRI, intravascular imaging, and computed tomography may be helpful to clarify diagnoses and direct treatment.
