Dr. Reisman was part of a nationally recognized team at the Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles to develop many of the early techniques in nuclear cardiology. Dr. Reisman's expertise is using these techniques including exercise stress testing for the detection and assessment of coronary artery disease. In addition, he was instrumental in developing the use of computerized quantitative techniques to evaluate the degree of blood flow severity in the blood vessels of the heart and assessing the risk for heart attack. Dr. Reisman also presented papers, http://newyorkcardiac.com/new-york-cardiologist/steven-reisman/ at national cardiology meetings concerning silent myocardial ischemia, which is both diminished blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart muscle without or before the occurrence of symptoms of chest pain and prior to the development of a heart attack.
