PET Imaging and Cardiac Disease Diagnosis

New - Cardiac PET Imaging

One of the most effective treatments used in the various medical stages of treating cardiac disease is Positron Emission Tomography. PET scans of the heart are highly effective images used to diagnose cardiac disease. It is particularly useful in detecting coronary heart disease, a condition in which the coronary arteries (the small blood vessels that supply blood and oxygen to the heart) are narrowed due to the build-up of fatty material and atherosclerosis (plaque). Blood flow to the heart is slowed and can even stop. The early detection of coronary heart disease and other forms of cardiac disease is vital as early treatment can prevent heart attack and/or stroke.
