Lake Worth Cardiac Stress Test - Medical Nuclear Imaging

To measure the health of your heart in Lake Worth, a Cardiac Stress Test performed by Dr. N. Henry Pevsner and his team of medical professionals can give you a valuable insight into any abnormalities present. A cardiac stress test is a simple and effective method for testing the flow of blood to the heart. It examines well the heart deals with external stress, by monitoring the effects of exercise and drug stimulation in a controlled medical environment. Our experts at Nuclear Medical Scans are friendly and skilled when it comes to performing this cardiological test, and they can relay the results to your doctor to diagnose any issues that are discovered.

Using a radioactive isotope which is injected into the heart, our Lake Worth Cardiac Stress Test demonstrates the flow of blood in your heart as it slows down and stops in comparison to your normal resting heart rate. With exercise to raise the flow of blood to your heart, such as a light cardio workout on the treadmill, our results are clear and often definitive. Also known as a Pharmacologic Nuclear Lake Worth Cardiac Stress Test, exercise electrocardiogram, treadmill test, graded exercise test, or stress EKG, it is great for helping doctors understand how you heart can manage when it is pushed beyond a certain level. We then work directly with your physician to distribute your results and suggest a diagnosis.

Doctors use exercise stress tests to find out:
