Stress Echo

Stress echocardiography, also known as stress echo, is a medical imaging test that uses ultrasound to assess how well the heart is functioning when it is put under stress. During a stress echo, the patient exercises on a treadmill or stationary bike to increase their heart rate and blood pressure. While the patient is exercising, an ultrasound machine is used to create images of the heart to evaluate its function and blood flow. This test can help diagnose and monitor a variety of heart conditions, such as coronary artery disease and heart valve problems.
