Will the nuclear stress test be dangerous for the potential fetus?

I have been having some heart palpitations. My cardiologist has scheduled me for a nuclear stress test. I have not been medicating to keep from getting pregnant. I dont think that I am currently pregnant but it is a possibility that I am very early on in a pregnancy. Will the nuclear stress test be dangerous for the potential fetus?

Hello,

I have understood your concern and I will suggest you the best possible treatment options. I will suggest you to get the testing done immediately after your periods, means within first 10 days of starting your cycle. Usually, in a woman with regular cycle, ovulation occurs between days 10 to 20 of the cycle. Doing the nuclear test before day 10, will prevent exposure of early pregnancy to any kind of radiation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Purushottam Neurgaonkar
