What is Nuclear Stress Testing?
Nuclear stress testing is an imaging method where a small amount of radioactive material is injected to trace blood flow in, through and out of the heart. The blood flow is tracked both while the patient is inactive and during activity. At the conclusion of the test, results from each stage – resting and exercising – are compared and assessed.
