RF Ablation Scar Tissue
Will scar tissue from an RF Ablation show up when you get a nuclear stress test?

Depending on the amount of scar present, yes, it is possible for this to show up on nuclear imaging. Usually the amount of tissue that is scarred during an RFA is small; however, if a large amount of territory was ablated (or have undergone multiple previous procedures), it may show up.
