What are the differences between a cardiac intervention and a cardiac diagnostic procedure?

In brief: In a diagnostic

procedure, they are just trying to figure out if there is a problem and what it is.
In an intervention, they are trying to fix a problem, like a blockage in an artery, for instance.
