A 39-year-old member asked:

Are there any medical complications from myocardial perfusion scan that would cause coughing?

No: No, not that i can think of.
Dr. Thomas Heston
Family Medicine 29 years experience
No: The scan itself should not cause a cough. However, you may experience a cough after performance of a stress treadmill test (due to exercise induced asthma) or performance of pharmacologic stress (due to dilation of pulmonary vessels).
