This service is provided by radiologists and uses nuclear medicine techniques to facilitate cardiac diagnosis.

Myocardial perfusion scans are performed to assess blood flow and muscle viability and are very useful in the setting of patients unable to exercise or with pre-existing ECG changes making interpretation of the ECG unreliable.

MUGA scans help to assess left and right ventricular function where other non-invasive technologies have limitations due to lung disease, obesity etc.

Nuclear cardiology therefore provides additional diagnostic information to your cardiologist.
