what is a cardolite test? I believe it is to do a catherization with the use of dye contrast but i"m not sure. Is this correct?

Dear Phil,

A cardiolite Stress test uses a nuclear agent known as cardiolite to image your heart after a stress test.  This is not a catheterization and only invovle an iv in your arm and noninvasive imaging under a large CT-like camera.
