nuclear imaging for heart disease

Cardiac SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) Scan. This non-invasive test is also called myocardial perfusion imaging. SPECT scans use small amounts of radioactive substances that are injected into a vein and special cameras to produce images of the heart in 3D. Using these computer images blood flow through the heart is measured and areas of abnormal heart muscle are detected.
