Nuclear Stress Testing
Expert Heart Diagnosis in The Woodlands
At Nasser Cardiology and Vein Center, we provide nuclear stress testing to measure blood flow to your heart when your body is at rest and when your body is being physically stressed. It functions much like a routine stress test but utilizes a special camera to capture images of the heart that identify regions of low blood flow and/or damaged tissue.
Nuclear stress tests are often recommended for patients who are suspected of having a coronary artery disease or are experiencing symptoms indicative of a heart problem. It can also be used to guide the treatment of an existing heart condition. The stress portion of the test can be administered during exercise or through medication.
Nuclear stress testing includes four stages:
- Exercise or Medication
