Nuclear Stress testing is a vital test procedure as it can confirm coronary heart disease and unlike exercise stress test, it can detect the real cause of symptoms like chest pain and shortness of breath. Also, it is concurrently done if you have an existing heart disease because it keeps track of your heart's health. This test measures the blood flow of your heart when you are static and when you had a strenuous exercise. Its difference with routine stress test is that it is able to show you the area of the heart where low blood flow happens. Images of damaged heart muscles can also be viewed.
One of the heart images it provides is the one when you are at rest. The other one is when you had a treadmill or stationary bike. Aside from those two exercises, stress brought by medicine can also capture the heart's image that can be compared to its appearance when static. Both of these images are important knowing that our heart should function well when it is at rest or even during physical activity.
The procedure is consisting of four stages namely: injection, rest, exercise or medication, injection. We offer you this service and for more information, contact us today!
