Stress Echocardiogram

The stress echocardiogram (echo) is a test used to detect and diagnose a variety of cardiac and vascular diseases. The stress echo combines an echocardiogram with the standard treadmill stress test. It tests your heart's reaction during periods of rest and exercise. The echocardiogram uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasounds) to look at how the various parts of the heart work.
