Stress on the heart is caused when the heart is working harder than it normally has to, for example, when exercising. The heart can respond to stress differently and in order to view the heart's reaction, stress will be placed on the heart, usually by walking and/or running on a treadmill. The heart will then be monitored and viewed after the stress is induced.
Trigger Point Injections
A trigger point is a painful knot of muscles that forms when muscles do not relax. These knots can often be felt under the skin. Sometimes, a trigger point can affect the nerves and cause referred pain that is felt in other parts of the body.

a local anesthetic sometimes containing a corticosteroid.

This can be used to detect ulcers, abnormal growths, precancerous conditions, inflammations and Hiatal hernias.
Vascular Angioplasty and Stenting
Similar to Coronary Angioplasty and Stenting, the same techniques are used except this is done in clogged or blocked vessels which are located outside the heart.
Wireless Capsule Endoscopy
Capsule Endoscopy is when a small camera capsule is swallowed and travels through the esophagus, stomach and small intestine taking pictures throughout the tract. The capsule contains a radio transmitter which sends signals to a receiver worn by the patient. About 24 hours later, the pictures from the receiver are downloaded. The capsule will then pass though the system and will be flushed down the toilet. This is used to diagnose Angiodysplasias, Crohns’s disease and tumors within the small
