About the Test
A Stress echocardiogram, also known as an exercise echo stress test, combines an ultrasound study of the heart with an exercise test. This test allows the doctor to learn which areas of the heart muscle do not receive an adequate blood supply.
Stress Echocardiograms help to evaluate:
- Blockages in the coronary arteries (the vessels that supply blood to the heart)
- The response of the heart muscle to exercise
At Danbury Hospital, the echocardiographic information is obtained by trained ultrasound personnel and interpreted by trained specially trained physicians.
