PET Scan in Cardiology

by | Feb 14, 2020 | Health

The Positron Emission Tomography has been an invaluable tool in the medical field since its inception in 1977. It has become a ubiquitous tool in any respectable medical center around the world. It’s a tool that allows physicians to actually see with their own eyes the real-time condition of any part of the human body.

The PET scan is precise enough to help physicians clinically assess the health and condition of the heart.

PET scan in cardiology is an invaluable tool.

Cardiac PET scans involve the use of radioactive materials called tracers that are intravenously introduced into the body or orally taken in. Their concentration in the most active part of the body allows the scan to actually see the tissue and muscular behavior at that moment.

It goes without saying that it is of importance that the PET equipment must be reliable and durable from daily multiple uses for years.

That’s why we at Cardiac Imaging are committed to providing the most advanced PET systems into the market. The machines we offer you allow your technician to carry out any physical scan within 25 to 30 minutes with the entire visit done in an hour.

Our newly introduced tracer Rubidium-82 or Rb-82 allows for a more accurate diagnostics while emanating far less radiation exposure for a quicker exam time over the previous tracer.
