A 40-year-old member asked:

Could you have a myocardial perfusion scan if you suffer from myoclonic dystonia?

Stress test: It is paramount that the patient is completely still when undergoing myocardial perfusion scanning -- therefore if the myoclonic dystonia is well controlled then you could probably have the scan -- otherwise you have other option of stress and imaging modality.

Probably not: In most clinics, you will need to stay still for 20 to 30 minutes while being scanned. If unable to do this, you may want to investigate other imaging tests such as stress echo or cardiac ct.
