Reasons for Nuclear Cardiology Tests


Nuclear cardiology tests are used for several purposes:

To evaluate blood supply to areas of damaged heart muscle after a heart attack

To assess whether you have coronary artery disease and to measure how much your arteries are blocked

To predict if you would benefit from additional procedures, such as cardiac catheterization or bypass surgery

To measure the effectiveness of treatments such as cardiac catheterization or bypass surgery

To determine impact of coronary calcium and coronary ischemia on your heart muscle

To assess your need for treatment with medications and lifestyle changes versus medical procedures or surgeries
