Dobutamine Stress Echocardiogram – DSE

The dobutamine stress test is a diagnostic procedure used to assess heart function, especially the left ventricle’s performance. It is primarily conducted for two main reasons-

  • Diagnosis of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD): This test helps identify and evaluate the severity of coronary artery disease, which is crucial for understanding blood flow to the heart during stress.
  • Assessment of Heart Muscle Function: It is a valuable tool to assess the function of the heart’s left ventricle, detecting issues such as cardiomyopathy or valve problems.
How it Works ?
  • Dobutamine, a medication that simulates the effects of exercise on the heart, is administered intravenously.
  • Simultaneously, an echocardiogram creates images of the heart’s response to dobutamine, allowing healthcare providers to evaluate its function, blood flow, and detect abnormalities.
  • Early Detection of Heart Conditions
  • Non-Invasive and Comfortable
  • Tailored to Individual Needs
  • Evaluates Treatment Effectiveness
  • Assists in Risk Assessment

The dobutamine stress test is a non-invasive and personalized way to diagnose heart conditions and assess treatment effectiveness, benefiting patients by aiding in early detection and improved cardiac health. We have highly skilled cardiac technologists and a proficient support staff available.
