Heart Disease

Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and its prevalence is growing.1 It is estimated that by 2030, 44% of the US population is projected to have some form of cardiovascular disease, which encompasses heart conditions and stroke.1 Over the same time period, the total direct medical costs are expected to nearly triple.1

Physicians may perform nuclear medicine tests—such as myocardial perfusion imaging—to diagnose heart disease and monitor a patient’s progress over time.
