Q. How does dipyridamole stress test work?
The dipyridamole stress test or thallium scan test helps your doctor identify areas of your heart which do not receive enough blood supply (myocardial perfusion) due to diseases of blood vessels in the heart (coronary artery disease). Dipyridamole is directly administered into blood vessels (IV) to induce stress on the heart which is similar to physical exercise by increasing blood flow to the heart. It is usually used in patients who cannot exercise.
