Myocardial perfusion imaging

What’s involved in a myocardial perfusion imaging scan?

A Myocardial perfusion imaging scan involves the injection of small amounts of radiopharmaceuticals, substances that are attracted to specific organs like your heart, which emit gamma rays that can be detected externally by special types of cameras.

What are the benefits of this scan? 

The resulting images can then be analysed to identify if there are any areas of concern in the tissues or myocardial wall of your heart.
