Radionuclide Angiogram (Resting, Resting & Exercise)

Radiologists of the Division of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging at Jefferson perform a radionuclide angiogram using advanced nuclear imaging technology to gauge how well blood flows into your heart to detect the narrowing arteries of coronary heart disease. Your physician will examine the test to compare the function of your heart during rest or during physical activity and rest.

Why Choose Jefferson for Coronary Artery Disease Treatment in Philadelphia?

If heart disease is found, you can take comfort in knowing that Jefferson offers more minimally invasive alternatives to surgery for the treatment of narrowed or blocked coronary arteries than any other hospital in the Delaware Valley. Our physicians have pioneered some of the most advanced interventional procedures and were among the first in the U.S. to use drug-coated stents to treat coronary blockage.
