About

Our team of specialists uses the latest technologies to screen patients at high risk for coronary artery disease, but who may not have any symptoms. Using nuclear imaging, doctors also can determine if patients with existing heart disease may benefit from interventional treatment.

As part of our comprehensive cardiac imaging lab, this technology uses special radionuclide dyes to trace the flow of blood through the chambers of the heart, through the arteries that supply blood to heart, and through the muscles of the heart. This process allows our physicians to see how well the patient’s heart is pumping.
