Cardiac Stress Tests

Cardiac Stress Tests

Cardiac stress tests are essential in understanding the heart's performance during physical activity. They involve inducing stress on the heart through physical activity or medication and then conducting tests to examine its response. At Doctor Reuter Medical Centers, we conduct Exercise Stress Echocardiograms, Dobutamine Stress Echocardiograms, and Exercise Stress Electrocardiograms (also known as treadmill tests).By combining stress with advanced diagnostic methods such as echocardiograms and electrocardiograms, we can assess the heart's function and overall health to provide effective treatment and care.

  • Exercise Stress Echocardiogram

    An exercise stress echocardiogram provides valuable insights into how your heart functions under stress or during physical activity.

  • Dobutamine Stress Echocardiogram

    A Dobutamine stress echocardiogram (DSE) test uses ultrasound imaging to assess your heart's performance under controlled pharmacological stress conditions. This test is recommended when your doctor determines that exercising on a treadmill is inappropriate option for you.

  • Treadmill Test

    A treadmill test, being one of the cardiac stress tests, is a valuable tool for assessing how well your heart responds to physical activity using an electrocardiogram (ECG).
