Some people, because of a variety of disabilities or effect of medications are unable to exercise adequately on a treadmill to achieve an optimal heart rate. In these cases, an injection of a drug called Persantine can produce an effect on the heart similar to exercise. Your physician will choose the type of stress testing.
