What We Do

This test uses a radioactive tracer to check how well your heart is pumping, the effects of chemotherapy on your heart, and the reason you have shortness of breath. (In other words, is the problem with your lungs or your heart?)

The test also helps with checking congestive heart failure and your health before having a heart transplant.
