Alternative tests for heart disease can also be used to check the blood supply to your heart.
These tests usually start with the simplest, such as:
· EKG or electrocardiogram
· Echocardiogram
and proceed to those that are more complicated such as:
· Stress echocardiogram
· Nuclear scan stress test
· Cardiac catheterization.
These alternatives may require drugs, dye, radioactive tracers, or a more complex procedure. At this time, your doctor feels that a basic exercise stress test is appropriate for you.
