Ask Health Experts and Get Answers to Your Health Question ASAP
Heart attacks don't always go along with typical chest pain symptoms. Thus it is good care to take him to the ER in the first place since he was not well at all.
But with normal heart enzymes and EKG a heart attack is very unlikely. It is still a good idea to control the heart function with ultrasound (sometimes the valves don't work properly), but I don't see any reason for an MRI. Sometimes it is a money issue (you earn a lot with MRIs), sometimes insecurity of unexperienced doctors, sometimes a hospital routine. I would ask the doctors if they have a real good reason for the MRI, if not, I would advice not to have it done.
I wish your father the very best!
