PURPOSE OF PROCEDURE:
This is a diagnostic test to evaluate chest pain, shortness of breath, to detect the presence of early
heart disease, to assess your functional capacity or to update the status of your coronary circulation

decreased blood flow to the heart muscle. The intravenous started in your arm will be used
throughout the test which takes approximately 4 hours. You will undergo a set of heart scans.
Electrodes will also be placed on your chest and you will be connected to a stress monitor for a series
of ECGs to be taken before, during and after exercising. You will then walk on a treadmill until you

treadmill, a substance will be administered to allow us to see how your heart would function during
exercise.)
