Chart a course towards optimal heart health with a nuclear cardiac stress test.A cardiac nuclear stress test at Atlantic Cardiovascular reveals a clearer picture, guiding you towards personalized care and peace of mind.

Nuclear Imaging Stress Test for The Highest Possible Quality Care

Concerned about your heart health but unsure where to start? A nuclear heart stress test at Atlantic Cardiovascular offers a window into your heart’s function, revealing crucial insights you can’t get from a standard checkup. This advanced imaging technique goes beyond the surface, assessing how well blood flows to your heart muscle both at rest and under exertion.

Unlike other diagnostic tools, a nuclear cardiology stress test provides a dynamic view of your heart in action. This allows us to detect early signs of coronary artery disease (CAD), even before symptoms become noticeable. With early detection comes the power to intervene proactively, significantly reducing your risk of future cardiac events. 

Choosing Atlantic Cardiovascular for your nuclear cardiology stress test means choosing a partner dedicated to your heart health. We understand that the road to a healthier heart can feel uncertain. That’s why we’re committed to providing clear, understandable information and empowering you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions. 

Our Suite of Nuclear Cardiology Stress Tests

We offer a comprehensive range of nuclear cardiology stress tests designed to provide a precise assessment of your heart health. Whether you’re experiencing symptoms or simply want to proactively assess your risk, our expert cardiologists will tailor the ideal test to your unique needs.

Exercise Nuclear Stress Test

During this test, you’ll walk on a treadmill or pedal a stationary bike while we monitor your heart rate and blood pressure. A small amount of radioactive tracer is injected, and images are taken to visualize blood flow to your heart muscle during exertion.

Pharmacologic Nuclear Stress Test

If you’re unable to exercise, we offer a pharmacologic stress test. Medication is used to simulate the effects of exercise on your heart, and images are captured to assess blood flow. This test provides similar insights to the exercise stress test without requiring physical exertion.

Resting Nuclear Stress Test

In some cases, we may recommend a resting nuclear stress test. This involves taking images of your heart at rest to evaluate baseline blood flow and function. It can be used in conjunction with other stress tests or on its own for specific diagnostic purposes.

Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (MPI)

MPI is a type of nuclear stress test that uses a special camera to create detailed images of your heart muscle. This allows us to assess blood flow, identify damaged areas, and determine the extent of any blockages in your coronary arteries.

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Stress Test

This advanced imaging technique provides highly detailed images of your heart’s blood flow and metabolism. It can detect even subtle abnormalities and help us assess your risk of future cardiac events with exceptional accuracy.

Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) Stress Test

SPECT is another type of nuclear stress test that produces 3D images of your heart. It can be used to evaluate blood flow, assess the size and function of your heart’s chambers, and identify areas of damage or scarring.

What to Expect During Nuclear Stress Test At Atlantic Cardiovascular

At Atlantic Cardiovascular, we prioritize your comfort and understanding throughout the nuclear stress test process. Here’s a detailed look at what you can expect:

Before the test, a small amount of a radioactive tracer will be injected into your bloodstream. This tracer helps highlight blood flow to your heart during imaging. You’ll then rest comfortably while our state-of-the-art equipment captures detailed images of your heart at rest. We’ll guide you through each step, ensuring you feel relaxed and informed.

To assess how your heart performs under exertion, we’ll gently induce stress. This can be done through either exercise (walking on a treadmill or pedaling a stationary bike) or medication, depending on your individual needs and capabilities. Our team will carefully monitor your heart rate, blood pressure, and overall well-being throughout this phase.

Once your heart rate reaches a target level, we’ll capture additional images to assess blood flow during stress. After a brief rest period, you’ll be free to return to your normal activities. Our expert cardiologists will meticulously analyze the images, comparing blood flow at rest and under stress to identify any potential blockages or abnormalities. You’ll receive a comprehensive report detailing the findings and recommendations for any necessary follow-up care.
