A stress echo is a test that takes pictures of the heart with the use of a probe placed outside your chest wall while your heart is working hard. To "stress" the heart, you'll be asked to exercise on a treadmill.
The pictures taken before, during and after your heart is "stressed" are displayed on the ultrasound monitor and are recorded on a disk for review and comparison. An exercise stress echo is performed by a sonographer and interpreted by a cardiologist.
