Northwest Houston Heart Center is pleased to announce the addition of the state-of-the-art cardiac PET scanner.
Cardiac PET scanner is emerging as the gold standard and most reliable noninvasive cardiac test in diagnosing coronary heart disease. Early detection of coronary heart disease is vital, as the early treatment of heart disease can prevent heart attacks.
Northwest Houston Heart Center is one of only three centers in the Houston area equipped with a dedicated cardiac PET scanner for precise diagnosis of coronary heart disease. Clinical studies have shown that cardiac PET scan is more accurate than other tests such as electrocardiogram (ECG) stress testing or single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT or traditional nuclear stress testing) in diagnosing coronary heart disease.
