The Cardiolite stress test or cardiac nuclear perfusion study is a diagnostic tool that helps calculate blood flow to the heart during rest and stress/exercise. Adding Persantine makes it possible to study blood flow to the hearts of those patients unable to exercise in a traditional fashion, such as on a treadmill.
Persantine Cardiolite Stress Test Newark DE

A Persantine stress test with Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (MPI), otherwise known as a Cardiolite, is a drug-induced stress test that can be done for individuals unable to walk on a treadmill. This test uses a short-lived radioactive material and computer imaging to highlight any severely diseased blood vessels that may be causing diminished blood flow to your heart. This test helps determine whether you have heart disease, or a heart-related cause of symptoms (such as shortness of breath or chest or upper back pain).
