In brief: Heart tests
Stethescope to listen to heart sounds, ECG to evaluate electronic conduction through the heart muscle.
Echocardiogram to use ultrasound to evaluate the heart anatomically and physiologically. Treadmill to assess the heart during a stress workload. Advanced imaging involves such tools as myocardial perfusion imaging, ct imaging, and cardiac mri. Electrophysiology studies help elicit and treat.
