What is Nuclear Stress Test?

A nuclear exercise stress test is similar to traditional cardiac stress test but adds an extra diagnostic dimension. A little amount of radioactive substance is injected into your bloodstream that helps your blood flow “glow” as it passes through your arteries and heart. A special camera produces computer images of your heart in action. This gives your cardiologist a clear view of your blood flow to your heart at rest and during exercise.
