Cardiac Positron Emission Tomography: Integrating Myocardial Perfusion Imaging, Computed Tomography, and Myocardial Blood Flow Assessment
In the era of high value care, the use of cardiac positron emission tomography (PET) is rapidly growing and is fast becoming one of the mainstays of cardiac imaging. Like myocardial perfusion single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), cardiac PET has been widely adopted by cardiologists to provide high-quality, patient-centered care. PET can aid in the assessment of known or suspected coronary artery disease (CAD), and can provide information regarding the presence, extent, and severity of CAD.
