What tests will I need before the revascularization procedure?
There are several tests that need to be done in order to check whether you are a candidate for the revascularization procedure. Blood tests, coronary angiogram, electrocardiogram, and X-ray of the chest are some of the tests ordered.
Your doctor will initially perform physical examination pertaining to your cardiovascular system and discuss medical history, your symptoms, and their severity. Then, you will have to undergo different tests that help find the arteries that are clogged and the severity of the blockage.
