When combined with exercise stress test, the Cardiolite scan helps determine if the heart muscle is getting the blood supply it needs. This test can be useful in detecting significant blockage in coronary arteries,

The Lexiscan Stress test is similar to Cardiolite Exercise Stress Test. Instead of exercising on treadmill, an intravenous injection of Lexiscan is given to simulate exercise. This test is useful in patients who can not walk on a treadmill.
