Nuclear Cardiology

Nuclear Cardiology is a non-invasive method for studying cardiovascular disease by use of nuclear imaging techniques. These examinations are usually done while the individual is exercising.

Nuclear medicine is the method in which small amounts of radioactive materials are used & are called as radiotracers that are typically injected into the bloodstream, inhaled or swallowed. The radiotracer travels through the area being examined and gives off energy in the form of gamma rays which are detected by a special camera and a computer to create images of the inside of your body. Nuclear medicine imaging provides unique information that often cannot be obtained using other imaging procedures and offers the potential to identify disease in its earliest stages, the myocardial perfusion imaging is the commonly used in Nuclear Cardiology.
