Download our PDF to find out what a myocardial perfusion scan is and what to expect when having one.


These tests are used to see how blood flows to your heart. A dye is injected to highlight the blood vessels in your heart. A large machine then creates pictures of your heart by scanning your chest and looking for the dye. This test can also be used before and after exercise to see how the flow of blood to the heart changes with exercise.
