Coronary angiography: Your cardiologist will carry out a coronary catheterization and angiography and determine weather or not there is one.

Not good: Depending on the degree of obstruction the dissection causes, you're facing anything from no symptoms to acute coronary syndrome to a full blown heart attack (myocardial infarction). There is only one way to accurately diagnose coronary dissection: with coronary angiography. Period.
