Pharmacologic Stress Testing

Pharmacologic stress testing with imaging, primarily dobu-tamine stress echocardiography (DSE) and dipyridamole/ exercise thallium, are excellent predictors of cardiac risk. Numerous studies have demonstrated a high negative predictive value (93 to 100%) of both thallium and DSE. The positive predictive value for thallium (4 to 67%) and DSE (7 to 23%) are much lower. The choice of the optimal test in the patient who cannot exercise depends on institutional expertise and physician comfort in interpreting results.
