What We Do

This test checks how your heart is working with the help of a medication called adenosine which increases blood flow to the heart. As tests go, it's pretty simple – there's no physical exercise required. 

This 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 by-pass or angioplasty) has done its job and is improving your health.
