Myocardial perfusion scan
A small amount of radioactive substance is concentrated in the heart to create images which show blood flow to the heart muscle.
Also known as a thallium scan, MIBI scan, technetium scan or nuclear medicine scan.
The myocardial perfusion scan looks at the pumping action of your heart and the flow of blood to your heart muscle. It can help diagnose coronary heart disease and may also be used by doctors to find out if you’d benefit from a coronary angioplasty or coronary bypass surgery.
