Nuclear Cardiology

Nuclear cardiology is a cardiology sub-specialty that conducts a wide variety of non-invasive cardiovascular imaging studies, including: myocardial perfusion imaging (nuclear stress testing) to diagnose and control coronary artery disease, radionuclide cineangiograms, and viability studies to determine the severity of myocardial infarction and to evaluate heart function.

Were studies in nuclear cardiology used to evaluate?

• Your heart function • Blood flow to the heart muscle • Lifestyle interventions and medicines • Best possible heart treatments• Whether shortness of breath, chest discomfort or fatigue is caused by heart disease.

A widest range of tests performed under Nuclear Cardiology are   • Myocardial perfusion tests  • Ventricular function studies  • PET scans  • Resting myocardial perfusion scan  • MUGA scans
