A member asked:

Can you tell me more about cardiac perfusion test and scan?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Perfusion scans: The main risks to these studies relate to the exercise stress used and to the radiation exposure. In general both are very well controlled and the complications and negative outcomes to these studies are very few and uncommon in good labs. The commonest side effects are with Persantine and Adenosine used to simulate exercise. Regadenoson a newer agent has few side effects.
