Stress testing at Crestwood Medical Center is a noninvasive procedure performed on a treadmill to identify and diagnose heart disease. Whether it is needed to evaluate the cause of chest pain, measure the strength of your heart or simply establish a baseline for individuals with cardiac risk factors like high blood pressure or a family history of heart disease, stress testing will help your doctor measure the heart’s ability to respond to external stress.
More extensive stress tests may involve an injection of radioisotopes to analyze the amount of blood flow to the heart muscle.
