Exercise Stress Echocardiography (ESE)

Exercise stress echocardiography (ESE) is a test which looks at how well the heart responds to stress. The most common form of stress induced for the test is to exercise using the treadmill.

Echocardiography, an ultrasound scan is used to scan the heart from different directions and records the images on computer for analysis. Scans are performed before and after exercising to determine if the heart muscle is functioning properly.
