Gated Heart Study
Preparation and Procedure:
Gated heart imaging is a well-established, relatively inexpensive and accurate method for evaluating cardiac size, wall motion and function.
The test should not be used for detecting intra-atrial or intra-ventricular masses such as clots or tumours, direct evaluation of valve motion, or estimating myocardial thickness. Cardiac Echo Studies are the procedure of choice for assessing these parameters.
