Exercise nuclear scan

This test has three parts. First, you will receive an injection of a radioactive tracer through an IV placed in your arm. A special nuclear camera will take resting images of your heart. Second, you will have a treadmill stress test in which you’ll receive a second injection of the radioactive tracer. Your heart rate and blood pressure will be monitored during this part of the test. And third, another set of images of your heart will be made.
