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.
