cardio scintigraphy

MYOCARDIAL IMAGING:

  • Diagnosis of coronary artery disease
  • Diagnosis of coronary artery disease
  • Assessment of the impact of coronary stenosis on regional perfusion
  • Distinguish viable hibernating myocardium from scar
  • Risk assessment and stratification Post myocardial infarction
  • Pre-operative for major surgery in patients who may be at risk for coronary events
  • Monitor treatment effect Monitor after coronary revascularization
  • Medical therapy for congestive heart failure or angina
  • Lifestyle modification

EQUILIBRIUM RADIONUCLIDE ANGIOCARDIOGRAPHY (ERNA / MUGA):

  • Determine global and regional measures of ventricular function (primarily LV function)
  • These measures of ventricular function may include evaluations of ventricular wall motion, ejection fraction (EF), and other parameters of systolic and diastolic function
