No, an electro-cardiogram (ECG or EKG) does not specifically reveal arterial blockages, but it does disclose possible problems that are occurring at the time of the test.

A stress tells more about obstruction of blood flow, but not where and how much. Especially when a greater demand on the heart is made.

To read more about these tests, you can go to our website (link below) and the click on the Healthy Heart Handbook for the chapter on Lab Tests.
