DRAXIMAGE® Sestamibi

DRAXIMAGE® Sestamibi

Clinical nuclear medicine studies play an important role in the non-invasive evaluation of cardiac physiology and function including myocardial perfusion. The use of nuclear cardiovascular examinations permits the sensitive detection and diagnosis of numerous cardiac abnormalities as well as the determination of the functional consequences and prognosis of coronary artery disease.

Imaging of myocardial perfusion with radiopharmaceuticals is the most commonly performed cardiac examination in clinical nuclear medicine practice. Its primary goal is to determine the adequacy of blood flow to the myocardium, especially in conjunction with exercise or pharmacologic stress for the detection, localization and evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD).
