Heart Program - Pediatric Cardiology

Cardiovascular Stress Lab

The Heart Program provides a variety of diagnostic testing in our stress lab, including:
  • Treadmill stress tests
  • Cardiopulmonary exercise tests
  • Myocardial perfusion stress tests

Myocardial perfusion imaging is designed to:

  • Evaluate the presence and extent of suspected or known coronary artery disease.
  • Determine the extent of injury to the heart following a heart attack, or myocardial infarction.
  • Evaluate the results of coronary artery surgical intervention or other revascularization procedures designed to restore blood supply to the heart.
  • Evaluate heart-wall movement and overall heart function with a technique called cardiac gating.
