Myocardial scintigraphy

2 times 2h


This test is carried out in 2 stages over the course of a day.

The first stage is the stress test:

An infusion is inserted to inject a radioactive product during the stress test, which is performed physically (on a treadmill) and/or with a drug that reproduces a similar effect. A first series of images of the heart is taken. The manipulators will see you through a glass and view your images in real time.

The second stage is rest:

During this stage, approximately 3 hours after the first injection, the same product is re-injected, but this time at rest. Resting images are taken 20 minutes after the injection.
