Isotope stress test
We continuously improve our technology, as we are clear that technology and research means new opportunities for our patients.
The Clinic has four ergometers to perform isotopic stress tests.
As in conventional ventriculography, the isotope stress test is performed on a mat or bicycle and with the same protocol, but two minutes before it is finished, radioisotope is injected which marks the red blood cells.
A scan is then performed in order to obtain images of the heart, and then another tomography is done.
This test determines how the heart pumps blood and whether the heart is working harder than normal to compensate for one or more blocked arteries.
