COMMITTED TO HELPING PATIENTS GET BETTER
What to Expect
✔️ Our team will ask questions about your medical history. Please be sure to report all medications you are taking.
✔️ You will be asked to lie down on a scanning table made especially for the PET camera.
✔️ Medication will be administered through an IV line in a vein in your arm. Small pads called electrodes will be placed on your chest so we can monitor the electrical activity of your heart throughout the study.
✔️ A small amount of a radiopharmaceutical will be given through your IV line. This lets the PET camera capture pictures of your heart.
In keeping with our strong tradition of innovation and unparalleled patient care, we strive to be the healthcare provider of choice for physicians and patients alike.
A stress test is sometimes called a nuclear stress test; doctors may call it an MPI.
Cardiologists use this exam to evaluate the heart health by measuring the blood flow it receives. The results of this exam determine if additional treatment is needed. It provides detailed images that can be used to diagnose and assess coronary heart disease.
Cardiac PET Partners provides Cardiac PET MPI, the gold standard for diagnosing coronary heart disease.
Cardiac PET MPI provides accuracy, excellent quality, and the ability to detect disease before symptoms arise. This extremely effective imaging tool can diagnose coronary disease with greater certainty and lower radiation exposure than traditional stress testing.
PET MPI ADVANTAGES FOR PATIENTS
✔️ Higher diagnostic accuracy
✔️ Significantly lower radiation exposure
✔️ Consistent high quality images
✔️ Shorter study time < 45 mins
WHY CARDIAC PET?
Patients Benefit from a Cardiac PET MPI Exam for a Variety of Reasons
✔️ Breast implants, large chest
✔️ High risk patients
✔️ Known or suspected CAD
✔️ Large body habitus, high BMI
✔️ Prior poor quality stress imaging study
✔️ Requires pharmacologic stress imaging
✔️ Urgent result needed
✔️ Unable to exercise
✔️ Young patients with CAD
✔️ The need for a more accurate test
