Cardiac PET - Positron Emission Tomography

North Shore Cardiac Imaging in New Hyde Park offers the only non-hospital Cardiac PET on Long Island.  The Cardiac PET or cardiac positron emission tomography scan is safe as the amount of radioactive material used is minimal and your body will process it quickly. Our highly specialized cardiologists will walk you through every step of the process.

The tracer dye helps identify disease or blood flow irregularities in the heart and vascular system.  The Cardiac PET scan shows all areas of your heart are getting an adequate amount of blood, if there is damage to the heart, or if there are any abnormal substances in the heart.
