Echo Stress Testing

Stress echocardiography, or stress echo, is a test that records images of your heart before and after exercise. By comparing the images, your doctor can tell whetheryour heart is getting enough blood to meet its increased demand for oxygen.Images of your heart are recorded on videotape for your doctor to seelater.  Allow at least 1–2 hours from your arrival to the time you can leave.

Before Your Test

During Your Test

After the Test
