Figure 28 presents forest plots of the individual study estimates of sensitivity and specificity of CMR for diagnosing CAD in women with no known CAD. Error bars represent 95% CIs; the dashed vertical line represents the summary sensitivity and specificity for the five included studies. In these studies, sensitivity varied from 58 to 83 percent, and specificity varied from 59 to 96 percent; the summary sensitivity was 72 percent, and the summary specificity was 84 percent.
