Precise Imaging of Heart Disease in Women and Men in Upper West Side

Nuclear medicine is a specialized area of radiology used to examine heart function and structure. Nuclear medicine is often used to help diagnose and treat abnormalities very early in the progression of a disease such as cancer or vein disease. It allows us to see what X-rays cannot. That is why Dr. Milani uses it in heart scans to identify abnormal blood flow and determine the extent of damage to the heart muscle after a heart attack. She also assesses various conditions such as:

  • Tumors
  • Abscesses
  • Hematomas
  • Enlargement
  • Cysts (including polycystic kidney disease)

While a nuclear scan may be used to assess heart function and blood circulation, it can also reveal any problems with the heart’s electrical activity. All of which makes nuclear medicine the perfect blend of science, technology and medicine.
