My dad has saw his cardiologist and has some thickness in is valve and the doctor heard a murmur. Additionally, his EKG showed a right bundled branch. The doctor order a Nuclear stress test and a cartoid ultrasound.

My question is why do a nuclear stress test rather than a CT angiogram? Wouldn't the Ct angiogram give more information. If he fails the nuclear stress test they would have to do an angiogram anyway. I think the radiation is about the same in both tests.


Thanks

Did you mean CAC and CT Angiogram are STRUCTURAL?

Yes David, true.  It's those false positive stress tests that are the problem.
