Cardiac Stress Test

Your physician may order a cardiac stress test at our Heart Center. This test helps physicians check the condition of your heart by assessing the flow of blood to the heart during physical activity.

Preparing for Your Stress Test 

  • Please bring a complete list of medications you are currently taking.
  • Plan to be at our facility for 2 to 4 hours, depending on the specific test.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to register.
  • You should have no food or drink for 4 hours prior to the exam.
  • You should have no caffeine products for 24 hours before your test.
  • For questions or to schedule an appointment (a physician order is required), call 423-526-0700.

Echocardiography (Adults)

An echocardiogram is a diagnostic test that uses ultrasound waves to create an image of the heart. This test can show the size, shape, and movement of the heart’s valves and chambers, as well as the flow of blood through the heart. Echocardiography may show problems such as poorly functioning heart valves or damage to the heart tissue from a past heart attack.

Preparing for Your Echocardiogram 

  • Please bring a complete list of medications you are currently taking.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to register.
