Diagnostic Services - Myocardial Perfusion Studies

Myocardial perfusion studies are provided in the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority and Prairie Mountain Health. Ask your health care provider where you are having your test.

What is a Myocardial Perfusion Study?

A myocardial perfusion study or stress test is a test that determines if the heart muscle is receiving adequate blood supply during rest and during stress. For this test, a very small amount of radioactive material is injected into a vein and images are produced that show the blood flow and/or damage to the heart.
