Treadmill Stress Echocardiography
This is a treadmill stress test where the use of echocardiography is added. A baseline scan of your heart in various angles are 1st obtained. You will then run on the treadmill. At the limit of your effort tolerance, the treadmill is stopped the scan of your heart is repeated immediately. The baseline scan will be compared with the exercise scan. If there is any portion of your heart that is supplied by a blocked artery, that portion will not function as well at peak stress. This will be seen on the echocardiogram. This form of stress test is more sophisticated and more accurate than a normal treadmill test as it has the addition of imaging. This form of stress test is not done in the majority of clinics as it requires specialized training and years of experience. In Cardiac Specialist Centre, this is our preferred form of stress test as our doctors are trained echo-cardiologists.
