Nuclear Cardiology

A noninvasive  method for studying cardiovascular disease by use of nuclear imaging techniques. These examinations are usually done while the individual is exercising. Coronary artery disease can be investigated as can damage to the myocardium following coronary infarction. The size and function of the ventricles can be evaluated using these techniques. It makes possible primarily functional assessment of the heart with quantification of perfusion and systolic function. Development of new types of scanners for nuclear cardiology brings more possibilities in research and clinical practice. This paper describes a brief review of some applications of cadmium–zinc–telluride (CZT) scanners in comparison with conventional cameras.
