AFib Question

Hello everyone, I have a question.  Have any of you who have been diagnosed with AFib ever received an MRI with contrast or a nuclear stress test prior to being diagnosed?  Thank you for your anticipated responses.

    Yes I have had both prior to diagnosis....actually nuclear stress test the week I was diagnosed before EP would prescribe rhythm meds.

    Not sure I understand the question.  An ECG makes it pretty clear that afib is going on.  I was diagnosed first during routine doctor appointment followed immediately by ER. I did have a treadmill echocardiogram as part of my subsequent workup with EP, along with a Holter monitor for a week+, also a sleep study that diagnosed sleep apnea.
