Abstract

Stress echocardiography is a widely applied technique for the evaluation of individuals with known or suspected coronary artery disease. The technique combines echocardiographic imaging with exercise testing or pharmacologic stress. Advances in digital image acquisition and harmonic imaging have substantially improved the quality of echocardiographic images, and have therefore increased general applicability of stress echocardiography.
