Treadmill GXT Stress Test

The treadmill GXT stress test evaluates the blood supply to your heart muscle during periods of exercise (stress) and rest. It measures your heart muscle’s ability to function and can indicate if heart disease is present.

For the test, you will raise your heart rate by walking or jogging on a treadmill. During this time, we constantly monitor the electrical signals from your heart using an electrocardiogram (EKG). Your treadmill GXT stress test and EKG results help us diagnose if you have coronary artery disease. We use this information to create your personalized treatment plan that may include medications and lifestyle recommendations.
