cardiac stress testing
 

Cardiac stress testing can be useful in identifying partial blockages in your coronary arteries.

 

The presence of coronary artery disease (CAD) can easily be missed when a person is at rest because there may be no sign of a problem until the heart is asked to perform at increased workloads.

 

The stress test is used to evaluate the heart and vascular system during exercise. It helps determine whether CAD is present when the heart is stressed by exercise and if there is underlying heart disease, the test can help determine how severe is it likely to be.
