See below: A stress thallium test uses a nuclear tracer to visualize blood flow during exercise or chemical stress in a person unable to exercise. The purpose of the test is to uncover artery narrowings that can impede flow when an increased demand for flow is required as in"stress." the test can also give information about the heart's pumping power called the ejection fraction.
