Cardiac Nuclear Imaging

What is Cardiac Nuclear Imaging?

Cardiac Nuclear Imaging checks the blood flow through the heart’s
muscle, or walls. A small amount of radioactive matter, or tracer,
is given through a vein in the arm. The tracer passes through
the blood and a scanning camera is used to take pictures of your
heart as blood flows through it.
 
The scanning is done during and after exercise. A drug can be
used to substitute for exercise. You will be notified of your
results within one week. These results assist your physician in
planning your medical treatment and any additional tests that
may be needed. It is very important that you carefully follow
the Patient Instructions for Nuclear Stress Test to avoid rescheduling.

Please call the main office if you are unable to keep your appointment
or there will be a charge for the radioisotope.
 
Cardiac Nuclear Imaging is done at our central location
at 1521 S. Staples Street, Suite 500.
