Medical Specialty:
Cardiovascular / Pulmonary

Sample Name: Stress Test Dobutrex

Description: Dobutrex stress test for abnormal EKG
(Medical Transcription Sample Report)


STRESS TECHNIQUE: Dobutrex was infused at 10 µg/kg/minute increasing in three-minute intervals. Maximum heart rate was 113. No significant EKG changes noted.

NARRATIVE: Uptake of radioisotope was adequate in all views. There was an inferior abnormality noted in the short axis view from 4:00-6:30. In the vertical long axis view, there was an inferior abnormality with minimal improvement. The horizontal long axis view had a lateral apical abnormality with no change.

WALL MOTION: The left ventricle was of normal size and motion. All wall segments moved normally.


1. Negative Dobutrex stress test.
2. Normal wall motion and ejection fraction.
3. Abnormal nuclear scan consistent with possible underlying ischemic heart disease. Clinical correlation suggested.
