Myocardial perfusion scan

Myocardial perfusion scan

Myocardial perfusion scan: A myocardial perfusion scan is a noninvasive test to measure heart muscle activity following intravenous injection of a radioactive substance; damaged areas (e.g. due to heart attack) do not metabolize the substance as well as healthy muscle, and appear as 'cold spots' by a gamma-ray camera. This test is often performed with nuclear ventriculography.
