Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Examine the prevalence of ischemic heart disease in population of patients with diabetes mellitus and atypical chest pain.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine the accuracy of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) and exercise tolerance testing (ETT) for the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) in a subset of patients undergoing clinically indicated coronary angiography.
  2. Determine the relative value of ETT, Duke Treadmill Score (DTS), MPI, ejection fraction (EF), clinical risk factors, and C-Reactive Protein (CRP) values for identifying patients at risk for cardiac events.
