Nuclear Cardiology

“Cardiolite” tests are available for standard stress and rest imaging to detect coronary artery disease. However, we also offer exams with Thallium, and “MUGA” exams for exacting quantitative measurement of left ventricular ejection fraction.

The Roanoke Heart Institute is certified by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Laboratories. Accreditation status signifies that our facility has been reviewed by an independent agency that recognizes our laboratory’s commitment to quality testing for the diagnosis of heart disease.

Our Cardio MD nuclear camera from Philips/ADAC is less massive than older models, reducing patient anxiety.

We have a full exercise and pharmacological stress testing program with convenient scheduling.
