Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy after physical or pharmacologic stress (STRESS) and during rest (REST)
This examination allows to detect myocardium (cardiac muscle) blood circulation disorders and their extent.
In addition, it is also possible to evaluate the haemodynamic importance of a known constriction of a coronary artery. The examination includes intravenously injecting a substance marked with radioactive technetium (99mTc) which will accumulate in the myocardium proportionally to circulation. This examination consists of two stages: after pharmacological stress (STRESS) and during rest (REST). If both examinations are performed on the same day, they will take about 5 hours. You can come to the examination only with a specialist’s referral.
