In the clinical application of nuclear medicine, the most direct benefit is the heart disease patients. In modern society, cardiovascular disease has become one of the major diseases that threaten human health, and nuclear medicine because of its non-invasive, easy to repeat inspection, accurate and reliable, but also because it can organ functions and metabolic reactions advantages, has become increasingly popular in cardiovascular disease diagnosis, treatment and prognosis.
At present, the most widely used, the more mature ECT cardiac examination is myocardial perfusion imaging, it is to observe the myocardial blood flow distribution imaging technology. Methods: after the intravenous injection of a small amount of nuclear medicine imaging agent, ECT can be seen in the heart of the absorption agent. If the area of the heart is different from the normal image, the doctor will know which coronary artery is a problem and how serious the problem is. Some people in the quiet heart is normal, but this does not mean that his heart is not sick, it is likely to show up when the exercise. Myocardial perfusion imaging can be used to diagnose the heart's ability to "reserve" by comparing the results of the heart under quiet and exercise load.
In the newspaper work of Liu six months ago feeling chest distress, done a lot of related inspection can not be diagnosed in other hospitals, the doctor in charge of this judgment is no problem Mr. Liu heart. Mr. Liu's family worried, he sent to the Central Hospital of nuclear medicine for myocardial perfusion imaging examination, found a heart of Mr. Liu's coronary artery has been blocked, a physician in time for him to do the surgery, the effect is very good, now Mr. Liu everyone joked that is "nuclear weapons" saved his life.
According to Cui Zhuren, nuclear medicine examination of the heart is a noninvasive, convenient and reliable means of inspection, no pain for the patient, the doctor, examination results can provide much valuable information. Radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging on precordial discomfort, pain, shortness of breath and other symptoms, can help them to accurately diagnose the presence of myocardial ischemia, the accuracy rate of more than 90%. In patients with coronary artery disease, radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging can be used to identify treatment options, and to assess the prognosis and risk. Now doctors in cardiovascular medicine are increasingly trusting the results of nuclear medicine.
