Our nuclear cardiac imaging team includes experts trained in cardiac nursing, nuclear imaging physics, and nuclear cardiology technology. Each team member works in concert to support our physicians. We are proud to provide a complete suite of diagnostic options available on site to give the highest level of quality for each individual.

Nuclear Cardiac Tests We Perform

Our expert technologists perform our nuclear cardiac tests with our new state-of-the-art camera, and then our physicians read the tests.

Cardiac SPECT (Single Photon Emission/ Computed Tomography) 

A noninvasive nuclear imaging test that uses radioactive material called tracers to produce pictures of the heart. This scan looks at blood flow through the heart and is used to determine if a heart attack has occurred and to diagnose coronary artery disease. The amount of radiation is small and is therefore safe for most people.

Amyloid Imaging

Nuclear amyloidosis imaging can determine the prevalence and or severity of amyloid in the heart. Deposits of amyloid in the heart cause cardiac amyloidosis, which can lead to congestive heart failure and arrhythmias.

MUGA - Multiple-Gated Acquisition

MUGA scan is an imaging test that looks at the heart muscle to see if it is pumping blood appropriately to the rest of the body. This test also shows any abnormalities in the heart’s size.
