In Cardiolite stress testing, why do doctors not exercise pts. with a LBBB and instead use lexi or abutomine?

Asked by Kaye Topel 3 years ago.

A dobutamine stress test is a test that allows a patient who cannot walk on a treadmill or ride a bicycle to complete a stress test. The tracer (cardiolite) is utilized. Images are obtained before the dobutamine is infused and after the dobutamine is infused. This helps to determine if areas of the heart are receiving enough blood or if there are blockages (coronary artery disease).
