Hello! I had this earlier this year following chest pain and feeling of fist in center of my chest, I have a family hist of young aged cardiac probs so docs had me in hos in a flash! I cant tell you how scared I was, but it took just a few mins and wasnt nearly as scary as the state i got myself in waiting for it! I didnt have the dye one tho although the letter I got said I would, just the mri which involves laying on a table and having a large round noisy machine go over your chest a few times, you need to hold your breath when they tell you (over a speaker from bhind a screen)
It was over really quickly, I think it took 2 or 3 mins, and I got the results in about a week.
Try not to worry, it really isnt helpful (says the worlds worst worrier!!)
I promise you it is no way as bad as your mind is worrying it is! Lots of wishes for a clear scan for you hun! x
