What is an Adenosine/Sestamibi Stress Echocardiogram:

An Adenosine/Sestamibi Stress Echocardiogram is basically another form of a stress echocardiogram. This study is used for patients who cannot exercise on a treadmill. Pharmaceutical stress is used to assess regional blood flow to the heart muscle both at stress and at rest. Pharmaceutical stress is used to increase myocardial blood flow.

The test will be ordered to assess chest pain or other symptoms that may be related to your heart. It is given to evaluate heart and valve functions when a patient is unable to exercise on a treadmill or stationary bike. The stress is then obtained by giving a drug that stimulates the same effect.

Like a stress echo, it is also used to determine how well a heart can tolerate activity and the likelihood of having coronary artery disease (blocked arteries), as well as evaluating the effectiveness of most cardiac treatment plans.

It is also sometimes referred to as a Dobutamine Echocardiogram.
