In brief: Somewhat

Stress testing, i.
e. Exercising while hooked up to an ekg, can be important to see if the extra heart fiber that causes this condition stops conducting at higher heart rates. The nuclear portion, which evaluates for ischemia or lack of blood flow, is not very important.

In brief: Nuclear

If your doctor is concerned that a tachycardia with WPW could cause an ischemic event in you.
The doc might order the nuclear stress test to evaluate whether ischemic potential is present. The nuclear images don't particularly bear info on the bypass tract(s).
