A Wellington Cardiac Stress Test is given when your physician has requested it. It will be give at our facilities Medical Diagnostic Scans by our board certified staff and board certified doctor, Dr. Pevsner. This particular exam checks how well your heart functions while undergoing physical activity. The cardiac stress test can also determine how much blood is going to the heart, and check for heart damage. The cardiac stress also checks how well your heart can react to stress while under the supervision of a doctor in a controlled environment. The heart test will answer many of the questions you have and we can decide what course of action to take next, along with your physician.
The Wellington Cardiac Stress Test is one of the popular exams conducted at Medical Diagnostic Scans. While performing the test, physical activity increases the blood that goes to the heart. First we will give you a radioactive isotope "tracer" injection into your heart muscle. It will indicate the areas in your heart that don't have an adequate amount of blood flowing, while comparing it your heart when resting. We use only top quality, state of the art equipment that is technologically advanced, and helps us conduct all the examinations we need thoroughly. We will find out what has been causing you pain or discomfort all this time and speak to your physician about it.
