    Alternatives to cardiac MRI depend on your situation and the information the doctor needs. They include other heart stress imaging tests, such as:
    • cardiac stress echocardiogram (heart ultrasound)
    • stress electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
    • nuclear stress test
    • cardiac catheterization/angiogram
    • CT scan of the blood vessels that feed the heart
