Nuclear Medicine is a safe, painless, cost-effective way to gather medical information that would otherwise be unavailable, require surgery, or necessitate more expensive diagnostic tests. It provides doctors with information about both structure and function of the body and can allow specialists to identify abnormalities very early in the progression of a disease, long before they are apparent with other diagnostic tests.
The Summit Health Cardiology Department offers the following Nuclear Medicine tests:
- Nuclear myocardial perfusion stress testing including: exercise, adenosine and dobutamine testing
- Echocardiography stress testing including: exercise and dobutamine testing
- Diastolic stress echo testing. Plain treadmill stress testing.
