What is Exercise Thallium Scan?

Q: Please tell me if thallium TMT is negative for how many years can one not worry about heart problem.

A:Exercise Thallium Scan is an investigation which is more accurate than a plain exercise test (TMT) in determining the presence of any severe blockages in the heart arteries.
