what is the most accurate test to detect heart problems?

I hear Echo's aren't that reliable. Anyone know what is the most reliable test to show heart problems?

Mate, it depends on what problem they're looking for.
Blocked arteries, faulty valve etc;

depends on the heart problem! I just had an EP Study with a Catheter and that was for heart rhythm and they found I had AVNRT, burned the pathway and I should be cured. If you have a blockage they do caths but through the arteries mine was through the vein.
