A stress echocardiogram measures the work of heart muscle during rest and work. This work may be induced by exercise or drugs that increase the heart rate. This exam can show heart structure, like heart muscle and valves. An ultrasound is used to show the pictures of the heart structure, size and movement. This is done by moving a transducer over the chest. This test is performed in order to check for irregular heart rhythms, the recovery of heart after exercise, cardiovascular conditions, and to see if there is a decreased supply of blood and oxygen to the heart.
