Baptist Health Doctor's Corner: Tests to Diagnose Chest Pain

There are several things doctors use to find out what's going on when you have chest pains.
Testing for chest pain includes an EKG, a treadmill stress test, a nuclear stress test, an echocardiogram and cardiac catheterization. 

The first test may provide the answer or may lead to a more invasive evaluation.  The answers may
find a coronary artery stenosis, valve dysfunction or a heart rhythm problem.

Dr. Dwight Chrisman with the Baptist Health Heart Institute explains how doctors make the diagnosis.
