Nuclear Stress Test

Nuclear Heart Scan is a test that provides information about your heart.

A safe, radioactive substance called a tracer is injected into your bloodstream through a vein. The tracer travels to your heart and releases energy, then special cameras outside your body detect the energy and use it to create a picture of your heart.

Nuclear heart scans are used for three main purposes:

  • To check how blood is flowing to the heart muscle.
  • To look for damaged heart muscle.
  • To see how well your heart pumps.
