In brief: The company it keeps
There are no "markers" for microvascular angina, per se.
The diagnosis can be made invasively at specialized centers (only a few around the country), but often is based on a "gestalt" of suggestive symptoms, sometimes with evidence of impaired blood flow ("ischemia") on stress tests, in a person with traditional heart disease risk factor, when typical angiograms show no blockages.

In brief: Angiogram diagnosis
Angina occurring without demonstrable narrowings of the larger coronary arteries on the surface of the heart.
Can be definitively diagnosed only with a coronary angiogram.
