What is the need for the TMT Test for Heart?

The TMT test helps diagnose heart conditions and see how well your heart handles the workload. Your doctor might suggest you a TMT test if you are undergoing heart surgery, heart treatment, or starting some vigorous exercise program. Other reasons for which a doctor might recommend a TMT test are-

  • Diagnosis of the damage or disease in the coronary arteries due to the accumulation of cholesterol or other substances (plaques).
  • Diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmia that can occur due to improper coordination of the electrical impulses.
  • Plan the treatment of heart disorders
  • Diagnose cardiovascular health

You might also be recommended a TMT test if you have one or more of the following symptoms that indicate a heart disease:

  • Fast heartbeat
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Dizziness
  • Chest pain
