Treadmill Stress Echocardiogram

A stress test administered while a patient exercises on a treadmill while closely monitored. During the test, a microphone-like device attached to the patient’s chest sends out ultrasound waves that bounce off the heart to produce images of the heart. The test is used to determine how well the patient’s heart tolerates activity, evaluate the function of the heart and valves, and determine the patient’s likelihood of having coronary artery disease.
