Abstract

Stress echocardiography is an attractive alternative to nuclear stress testing. Voluminous data now show that the diagnostic capabilities of the two stress tests are comparable. Small subgroups of patients may evolve in whom one test might be preferred over the other for medical reasons. However, in general the two tests seem to provide similar information, and the decision as to which examination should be performed will depend primarily upon the availability of high-quality studies and then on factors such as convenience and cost to the patient.
