Different test results on electrocardiogram and CardioLite?

Sorry, It is Echo.

Asked by Kareem Sultemeier 3 years ago.

Electrocardiogram does not show EF. It must be Echocardiogram. Myocardial function tested on Cardiolite stress test is more reliable that one that is done on ordinary Echocardiogram as the technique is more advanced. Therefore, you can assume that your true Ejection Fraction(EF) is 55-60 which is normal. Good luck.

You cannot measure ejection fraction from an ecg .The cardiolite showed a EF OF 55-60. It is slightly below normal but nothing to worry about. EDIT: good thing that you clarified that, the cardiolite is more accurate that the echo

Definitely speak to you doctor. EF lower than 40% may indicate heart failure or some other problem. generally, most would say an EF above 80% is ok, but since your cardiolite EF was less than that, I would suggest speaking to your doctor right away. Are you on any medications that could be causing the fluctuation? (Digoxin, Beta-Blockers, Verapamil, Diltizaem, etc.?)

cardiolite tests are more reliable than conventional echo test.
