Example text

The present study will utilize percent of coronary stenosis in the left anterior descending (LAD) artery as the measure of coronary artery disease severity where higher percentages of blockages represent increase severity of the disease. The LAD artery was chosen for measurement in the present study as it is one of the main coronary arteries responsible for maintaining blood flow and because it is particularly susceptible to atherosclerosis. 39 The angiogram procedure involves inserting a catheter usually through the leg or groin area and it is guided up toward the heart’s arteries.

To support convergent validity, each subscale was correlated with an existing 50 inventory that measures a similar construct. As seen in the correlation matrix shown in Table 3, each of the PICI subscales correlates moderately with the appropriate existing inventory, and each PICI subscale correlates most highly with the intended measure as opposed to other inventories that measure similar or related constructs. Each correlation is in the expected direction (noting that lower PICI scores are indicative of increased pathology).
