Exercise Stress Echocardiography (ESE)

Echocardiography uses ultrasound waves (high-frequency sound waves) to assess the motion of heart muscle and blood vessels.

Exercise Stress echocardiography (ESE) is an exercise stress test that allows the cardiologist to study the capacity and reserve of heart muscle function under stressful condition.

You need to exercise on a treadmill machine so your heart will beat faster and harder. Ultrasound images are then obtained to study the heart’s function immediately after exercise. These are then compared to the images obtained at rest to determine if any part of heart contracts abnormally.
