Nuclear & Stress Testing

General Information

The Nuclear Cardiac Imaging program at Yale is a high-volume lab (more than 4000 SPECT, PET and gated blood pool studies per year) that employs state-of-the-art technology to provide critical diagnostic and prognostic information. Our lab performs both inpatient and outpatient stress testing, optimizing the stress protocol and imaging protocol for each patient. In addition, we perform gated blood pool imaging, which we employ in the monitoring of left ventricular function in patients receiving potentially cardiotoxicity chemotherapy and in the evaluation of patients for ICD implantation.
