What We Do​​​

The test gives us information about how your heart is working. A medication called dobutamine is used to increase your heart rate and make the heart contract more than usual.

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.​
