Examen MUGA

Para realizar el examen MUGA se inyecta isótopo radioactivo en la vena. Los isótopos radioactivos se adhieren a los glóbulos rojos y pasan a través del corazón a la circulación. Estos isótopos pueden ser rastreados a través del corazón utilizando cámaras especiales o escáneres. El examen a menudo se realiza en reposo y luego se repite con ejercicio o después de administrar ciertos medicamentos. Este examen se lleva a cabo para detectar ciertas condiciones cardíacas.Examen MUGA
