cardiac PET, myocardial perfusion, PET-CT, cardiac perfusion

A PET-CT cardiac perfusion exam from a Siemens Biograph scanner. The black and white areas of the image show the CT imaging of the anatomy. The colored portion shows the PET overlay on the myocardium and is color-coded to show tracer uptake values. This can show areas of the heart muscle where there are perfusion defects cause by infarcts or coronary artery blockages due to a heart attack and help determine the severity of the ischemia.
