Nuclear percussion test

What is it? Anyone experience this?


  1. A nuclear cardiac stress test helps diagnose and monitor heart problems. I have had a nuclear stress test pre- transplant to determine my heart function to see if I needed to have a heart transplant. Feel free to ask any questions. Thank you for sharing. Leslie (Community Moderator)


    1. Hi. Welcome to our community. You ask a great question. And I see you received a good response from . And I agree with her response. We also have a contributor who went through a nuclear stress test write about her experience. Perhaps it will help you understand the experience from someone who has gone through it. I will post a link to her article here (https://heart-failure.net/living/my-experience-with-a-stress-test). Is this a test that your doctor has ordered for you? John. community moderator.
