Our practice has a special interest in exercise physiology testing. This testing is used to evaluate the response of the heart and cardiovascular system to exercise. We also use a cardiopulmonary bicycle ergometer. This system provides sophisticated information regarding cardiopulmonary performance during bicycle exercise. In addition, we offer more advanced myocardial perfusion imaging with pharmacologic or exercise stress.
Exercise testing is performed with either a treadmill or a bicycle and utilized in the evaluation of patients to determine explanations of palpitations, arrhythmias and chest pain.
