What is a Stress Echocardiogram:

A Stress Echocardiogram helps identify issues that revolve around how physical stress affects parts of the body. Some heart problems, like those involving the coronary arteries, occur only during physical activity.

During a stress echocardiogram, ultrasound images of a heart are taken before and immediately after the patient has been on a treadmill or rode a stationary bike.

A stress echocardiogram is usually done to find out if there is a decreased blood flow to the heart (coronary artery disease, or CAD). It may reveal a lack of blood flow that isn't always apparent on other heart tests.
