What ​We Do

This test examines how well your heart is working. A medication called persantine is used to increase blood flow to your heart.

The test is very useful in checking whether there are any blocked arteries, how your heart treatment is progressing and if your heart is strong enough for surgery. It will also tell us if any recent heart surgery (like a bypass or angioplasty) has done its job and is improving your health.
