Using cardiac CT scans on low risk chest pain patients can reduce costs and shorten the length of hospital stays, researchers in Seattle said. A cardiac CT, or computed tomography, is much less expensive and time consuming than the traditional standard of care workup comprising enzyme tests, nuclear stress testing and electrocardiograms, researchers at the University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, said. Cardiac CT workups in low risk chest pain patients decreased the length of...

The cardiac stress test is a diagnostic test used in Cardiac pathology for the purpose of patient diagnosis. It measures the heart’s function while placing a heavier workload on the heart. The cardiologist cannot be at the patient’s side while at work, under stress, during a workout or pushed to the limit so this test mimics those activities in a controlled setting. How it is Performed The stress is created by increasing the workload on the cardiac system. This can be accomplished by...
