Alternative tests for heart disease can be used to check the blood supply to your heart.
These tests usually start with the simplest, such as:
· EKG or electrocardiogram
· Holter monitor
· Exercise stress test
and proceed to those that are more complicated, such as:
· Nuclear scan stress Test
· Cardiac catheterization.
These alternatives may require drugs, radioactive tracers or a more complex procedure. At this time, your doctor feels that a basic, stress echocardiogram is appropriate for you.
