What is the the difference between a lexiscan stress test and a cardiolite stress test ?

Asked by Ciara Altop 3 years ago.

cardiolite is an isotope that is injected before and during exercise so that it shows up in the heart to see if there are any blockages in the arteries. Lexiscan is a drug used along with cardiolite to make the heart act like it is exercising. It can be used as a resting treadmill and also with walking. It is used on patients that cannot walk on a treadmill or are walking on the treadmill and cannot walk long enough to get their target heart rate or the heart rate does not increase with exerecise usually because of drugs the patients are taking called beta blockers.

I think New Zealand because of their very bad result of test cricket. Recently England has defeated New Zealand very badly also their performance not like good now. So, I think New Zealand is the most under rated test cricket team in the world or I think South Africa is the most powerful test cricket team in the world.
