MRI stress test: as long as he will kidney function, lung function and ECG conduction are reasonable there should be very minimal worry of bad effects, adenosine can cause transient breathlessness, headache, abdominal distress typically self limiting for a few minutes. Check with the ordering physician if you should hold your diltiazem. Good luck
