Quick question .....

I am having a precautionary nuclear ☢️ stress test .

not really because of symptoms and mostly because I think it makes sense (I've also met my deductible this year ) as I have had artery issues in the past. 

ive had several tests before .... I know the radioactive tracer stuff is harmless or at least low risk .

what about the camera they use ? I think it's a gamma camera?  Any concerns there for a pacemaker implanted patient ? 
 

my cardio knows I have a PM .... I could assume he knows and wouldn't put me in an update safe situation ?

I've had three.  Absolutely no problem.
