Cardiac PET Partners is a state-of-the-art scanning facility in Encino, California. Gabe Vorobiof, MD, uses advanced imaging tests to track, monitor, or diagnose many of the most serious heart conditions. Often, these conditions have few or no symptoms, but cardiac tests can identify potential complications before they occur.
Cardiac PET Partners, which strives to be the cardiac PET imaging provider of choice for physicians and patients alike, frequently welcomes patients who are experiencing angina and heart attack symptoms.
They also routinely assist with monitoring or diagnosing congestive heart failure (CHF), coronary artery disease (CAD), and cardiac sarcoidosis. Conditions like these share many of the same or similar symptoms, and getting a diagnosis is a vital step toward a patient receiving the treatment they need.
There are a few tests patients can undergo with the aid of the Cardiac PET Partners team. The practice provides cardiac PET scans, often combined with computed tomography (CT) scans in viability testing. Stress tests are also often necessary to see how a patient’s heart performs during exercise.
Tests available at Cardiac PET Partners not only detect conditions and complications of the heart, but they can also evaluate the success of a particular treatment such as a coronary stent or various medications.
The overriding care principle at Cardiac PET Partners is saving lives through better technology. Find out more by scheduling testing over the phone or online at the practice today.
