This is a specialised heart ultrasound scan used to identify possible narrowings in heart arteries. It is called a stress test as the heart rate is increased during the test in a controlled way. We are experts in the main recommended forms of stress echo - using either medication or exercise to increase the heart rates.
Advanced Cardiac Imaging
In certain scenarios more advance imaging techniques are needed to diagnose cardiac conditions. These tests include CT scanning of heart arteries or heart MRI scans (also known as cardiac MRI scans). MRI scans can be used to look at heart structure and function, to detect abnormalities with heart muscle and to identify areas of reduced blood flow due to heart artery narrowings.
