This diagnostic service measures the hearts ability to respond to stress induced by exercise or drugs. Cardiac stress tests compare blood flow to the heart muscle while the patient is at rest to the same blood flow abilities during exertion on the heart muscle. This is used to determine ischemic heart disease as well as a patient's risk of having a heart attack.
