Nuclear Stress Testing

Nuclear Stress Testing: Precision Heart Diagnosis in The Woodlands

Nasser Cardiology and Vein Center is at the forefront of heart diagnostics, offering nuclear stress testing to evaluate blood flow to your heart both at rest and during physical stress. This advanced procedure, akin to a routine stress test, employs a specialized camera to capture detailed images, pinpointing areas of low blood flow and potential tissue damage.

Indications for Nuclear Stress Testing:

  • Coronary Artery Disease Suspicions: Recommended for patients suspected of having coronary artery disease.
  • Symptoms of Heart Problems: Useful for individuals experiencing symptoms indicative of a heart condition.
  • Guiding Treatment: Assists in guiding the treatment plan for existing heart conditions.

Nuclear Stress Testing Procedure – Four Stages:

  1. Injection:
    • The procedure begins with the injection of a contrast dye, allowing clear visualization of blood flow.
  2. Rest:
    • Imaging is conducted while your body is at rest, providing a baseline for comparison.
  3. Exercise or Medication:
    • Physical stress is induced either through exercise or medication, simulating the heart’s response to increased demand.
  4. Post-Stress Injection:
    • A second injection is administered to capture post-stress images, aiding in a comprehensive assessment.
