Nuclear Stress Test
A nuclear stress test uses radioactive dye and an imaging camera to take pictures of the blood flow to your heart. The test is performed in two stages at rest and following exercise on a treadmill. Ages show areas with reduced blood flow or damage from an old heart attack. The test is performed after injecting radioactive dye, then taking two sets of images of your heart — one while you’re at rest and another after exercise on a treadmill or after receiving a drug. If you have arthritis, reduced mobility or significant shortness of breath to exercise on a treadmill or have specific baseline ECG abnormalities, then intravenous medications are injected, that mimics the effects of exercise, by dilating your heart’s blood vessels. Compared with a regular treadmill exercise stress test, a nuclear stress test can provide more useful information about the risk of a heart attack or a past heart attack.
