Normal Nuclear Medicine Myocardial (heart) Perfusion Scan. This scan is performed on a camera that rotates around the patient and produces 'slices' of the heart in several different views. The nuclear radiologist looks for areas in the heart muscle that are not receiving enough blood flow. These areas can often be treated to restore blood flow.

Note: Images are shown for illustrative purposes. Do not attempt to draw conclusions or make diagnoses by comparing these images to other medical images, particularly your own. Only qualified physicians should interpret images; the radiologist is the physician expert trained in medical imaging.
