A cardiac stress test helps you and your doctor learn more about how your heart is working. A cardiac stress test with images use a radioactive tracer that enters your heart to show blocked arteries or other damage. It allows us to take images of blood flowing in your heart. We take images of your heart at rest and after your heart rate has increased. The exam takes about two to three hours.
A cardiac stress test with images is a type of nuclear medicine exam.
