    Stress/Treadmill Test

    One way doctors can assess how well your heart is working is to test how well you can exercise. If your doctor is concerned about your symptoms or other risk factors for heart disease, you may be asked to take a treadmill, or stress, test. You'll walk on a treadmill while your doctor monitors how your heart responds to the exercise. Special cameras may also be used to take pictures of your heart.

    Stress Testing

    If your doctor suspects you may have blockages in the coronary arteries that supply blood to your heart or other heart problems, you may be scheduled for a stress test. This test, sometimes called an exercise stress test, measures how well your heart functions when it has to work harder.
