This is a 3-hour test involving injection of a small amount of harmless radioactive substance (Myoview) to assess blood flow to different regions of the heart muscles. The test assists us in detecting significant coronary artery disease by imaging the uptake of the radioisotope.

Patients determined to need Myocardial Perfusion Stress Test as part of their workup for coronary artery disease will be given special instructions in the office.
