Heart Tests

You can visit my YouTube Channel, Tom Wade MD, for additional videos. Currently there are forty.

Thes videos on this page discuss some of the many different heart tests and what they show and when they are indicated. Every test has strengths and weaknesses and I go over both. And even if a heart test is normal, a person could still suffer a fatal heart attack the day after having the test (for example,even after having a completely normal coronary angiogram) In the video on coronary angiograms, I go over why even this excellent heart test is not infallible.
