Nuclear Cardiology

A Nuclear Perfusion Study is a very sensitive tool that is able to access noninvasively the blood supply to your heart, both at rest and with exercise. In this way we can diagnosis, without invasive procedures, whether your heart is at risk of any significant blockages. This study involves injecting a small amount of radioactive substance through a vein in the arm. The stress portion of the study can be performed on a treadmill or chemically.

A MUGA scan is the gold standard for the most accurate assessment of the function of the heart muscle. This is a safe and well established radioisotope technique.
