What is Cardiac Imaging?
Cardiac imaging is a term that refers broadly to the use of radiology tests that examine the heart and circulatory system to find blockages or damaged heart muscle. Common examples of technology used for cardiac imaging include Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
What is a Stress Test?
A stress test evaluates a patient's exercise tolerance and determine if there is narrowing in an artery leading to the heart muscle -- a warning sign of a possible heart attack. By comparing the electrical activity of the heart before, during, and after physical exercise, your doctor can determine how well the heart muscle is functioning during increased stress.
