    Cardiac PET/CT Scan

    What is a Cardiac PET Scan?

    Short for Positron Emission Tomography, a PET scan involves taking a nuclear imaging test that will create accurate 3D images of the heart. What makes this noninvasive test even more sought-after is that it provides detailed and precise images while using less radiation than other types of nuclear stress tests.

    When you visit our cardiologist for a cardiac CT scan in The Woodlands, TX, we will use the detailed images to make decisions about the next step in your heart care.

    Our Cardiac PET Scan Procedure in The Woodlands, TX

    At our facility in The Woodlands, we generally take 45 minutes to perform the PET scan. We will instruct you on how to prepare for the test beforehand, which includes guidelines on taking medications as well as when to stop eating and drinking.

    Our technologist will insert an IV for the tracer and attach the electrodes in order to monitor your heart rate during the test. Then, we will wait until your body absorbs the dye before proceeding to the imaging stage. Our expert professional will ask you to lie flat and still on a narrow table that is attached to the PET machine. And, with reduced radiation, our machine will take thin scans of your heart from multiple angles.

    Thanks to the radioactive tracers, our cardiologist will know which parts of the heart receive sufficient blood and which areas do not. This way, we learn about the condition of your heart and draft suitable treatment plans for you.
