The cardiologist: I assume you mean who generally makes the diagnosis. The internist or primary care may also make the diagnosis via ekg or stress test. The diffinitive diagnosis of CAD as far as what arteries are involved and how severely they are narrowed is achieved by cardiac catheterization (dye into the arteries) which is performed by a cardiologist. Some are now using ct scan but the accuracy remains in ?

Giovanni Morgagni?: Giovanni morgagni is generally considered the father of anatomical pathology -- and may have been first to name the blood vessels around the heart, "coronary." they sit like a "crown" (latin: "coronarius") upon the heart. Morgagni also described "hardening" of these arteries. Many others, of course, have also contributed to the development of these ideas.
