maximal treadmill test

maximal treadmill test (MTT)

an exercise stress test in which subjects increase their heart rate during exercise to 80% to 90% of the maximal rate, which is estimated from each subject's age and sex. Newer methods of stress testing produce the same physiological effect of exercise on the heart without using exercise. These tests use drugs such as dipyridamole to "stress" the heart.
