Contrast Stress Echocardiography

A contrast stress echocardiogram is a non-invasive cardiac test that combines a stress test and echocardiogram. Ultrasound images of your heart are taken before and immediately after you walk on a treadmill to determine how well your heart and blood vessels are working.

A substance called a contrast agent is used to help improve the quality of the images collected. The contrast is administered by a technologist or nurse using an intravenous (IV) line.
