—I appreciate Dr Spodick's comments on our article and agree with his comment regarding the inappropriateness of the term "noninvasive" in relation to radionuclide studies. Despite my assiduous attempts to avoid "medspeak," it appears that this incorrect phrase was allowed to slip through. As an Englishman who heartily agrees with Dr Spodick's views on "the cardiologists' assault on English,"1 I can only appear shamefaced and thank him for his comment.
