Nuclear Cardiology & Electrophysiology

Nuclear Cardiology has played a pivotal role in establishing the diagnosis of heart disease and in the assessment of disease extent and the prediction of outcomes in the setting of coronary artery disease. Nuclear cardiology studies use noninvasive techniques to assess myocardial blood flow, evaluate the pumping function of the heart as well as visualize the size and location of a heart attack. Among the techniques of nuclear cardiology, myocardial perfusion imaging is the most widely used. Nuclear Cardiology is often mistakenly considered a synonym of myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI), but has broader applications, including metabolic imaging, innervation imaging, among other technologies. MPI has been a powerful diagnostic and prognostic tool in the assessment of patients for known or suspected CAD for decades, and is now increasingly used for the evaluation of the anti-ischemic effects of various therapies, according to changes in left ventricular perfusion defect size defined by sequential MPI.

Electrophysiology: The biomedical field dealing with the study of electric activity in the body. Electrophysiology includes the study of the production of electrical activity and the effects of that electrical activity on the body. See, for example: Electro physiologic retinal testing; and Electro-physiologic study of the heart. Electrophysiology studies

 (EPS) are tests that help doctors understand the nature of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias).

  • Electrophysiology studies test the electrical activity of your heart to find where an arrhythmia is coming from.
  • These results can help you and your doctor decide whether you need medicine, a pacemaker, an implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), cardiac ablation or surgery.
  • These studies take place in a special room called an electrophysiology (EP) lab or catheterization (cath) lab while you are mildly sedated.
  • When someone’s heart doesn’t beat normally, doctors use EPS to find out why. Electrical signals usually travel through the heart in a regular pattern. Heart attacks, aging and high blood pressure may cause scarring of the heart. This may cause the heart to beat in an irregular (uneven) pattern. Extra abnormal electrical pathways found in certain congenital heart defects can also cause arrhythmias.
