Multimodality cardiovascular imaging is a cornerstone diagnostic tool in the diagnosis, risk stratification, and management of cardiovascular diseases, whether those involving the coronary tree, myocardial, or pericardial diseases in general and particularly in women. This manuscript aims to shed some light and summarize the very features of cardiovascular disease in women, explore their unique characteristics and discuss the role of cardiovascular imaging in ischemic heart disease and cardiomyopathies. The role of four imaging modalities will be discussed including nuclear medicine, echocardiography, noninvasive coronary angiography, and cardiac magnetic resonance.
