CAD is the abbreviation for coronary artery disease.
The coronaries are abbreviated as follows;lad-left anterior descending, om-obtuse marginal, diag-diagonal, rca-right coronary artery, lm-left main, cx-circumflex, ramus-ramus intermedius, pda-posterior descending artery the word coronary comes from corona or crown. If the heart muscle is removed from the heart, the arteries look like a"corona".
