The PET machine then takes pictures of where the rubidium-82 is located in the heart, to show how well blood flows through the heart. Two sets of images are taken during PET myocardial perfusion imaging, one at rest and one during stress, when the heart is working hardest. The stress is induced by injection of a drug called Persantine (Dipyridamole), which mimics the effect of exercise on the heart. If you suffer from diabetes or asthma you must inform your doctor for special instructions before the test. Prior to the stress test, a stress technologist will discuss the stress portion of the test with you. You will then be asked to sign a Stress Test Consent Form. You should read it carefully and should not hesitate to ask any questions of the technologist or supervising physician. It is important that you understand the entire procedure before it begins. An injection of a drug called aminophylline is given to you afterwards. This drug reverses the effect of the Persantine on the heart. You may feel tingling in the face after the aminophylline injection. The entire test is completed in about one and a half hours. The nuclear technologist processes the study. A physician experienced in the interpretation of the studies reads the test. The report is then sent to your doctor.

I have got a nuclear stress test about 5- years ago. I had to walk on a tread mill and they injected some radioactive substance and took pictures. This time when I took the same stress test, I was very much disappointed that I could not sweat or walk on the treadmill. Instead they injected a chemical called Persantine which dialated my heart vessels and then they injected rubidium -another radioactive substance before they took pictures with the PET (Positron Emission Tomography) before and after dialation. I am at a loss to understand that what would be difference or the effect of dialating vessels by natural way of walking on a treadmill and by injecting a chemical -called Persantine. They had to give an antidose of Aminophelene to neutralize the effect of persantine. They also told me that the radioactive substance will get out of your system within few minutes instead of in old time test where we had to drink a lot of water and pass it all out in the urine for 1-2 days. Answered by Suk Boero 1 year ago.

Most practicing cardiologists prefer a so-called chemical or nuclear stress tests to the standard treadmill stress test. The 1st advantage is that the chemical / nuclear stress test does not allow the individual to walk on a treadmill as many people are not able to do so. The 2nd advantage is that treadmill stress testing reports only electrocardiographic changes - the ECG has inherent limitations and may be normal when coronary artery disease is in fact present - while chemical / nuclear stress testing provides actual images. Dipyridamole (Persantine) does not dilate the heart nor does it dilate blood vessels. Adenosine, dipyridamole, and dobutamine are all utilized for such nuclear stress testing. What these drugs do is to 'stress' the heart in a sense as these drugs cause the heart to behave as if you had just walked on a treadmill. Simply because a substance is 'radioactive' does not mean that there are any health risks associated with its usage. I suspect that the test was a SPECT rather than a PET. SPECT is single photon emission computed tomography. PET scans are most often reserved to scan an individual with cancer looking for evidence of cancer cells throughout the body. I also suspect that you received aminophylline to negate or terminate the cardiovascular stress of the other drugs. If I may be of further assistance please let me know. I wish you the very best of health and happiness and in all things may God bless. JR Answered by Fran Therrien 1 year ago.

I would like to know if anyone has had a persantine cardiolite stress test and what kind of reaction you had.?
I had a horrible reaction. I thought I was going to go into v-tach. I would just like to know if this is a common reaction. Asked by Scottie Marchesano 1 year ago.

Not unusual. That's why we almost never used persantine when I used to do them. Adenosine gives equally good results with lesser side effects that last a couple of minutes at most. Also, patients often need an "antidote" to counteract the side effects of the persantine. Answered by Alita Bolebruch 1 year ago.

I'm having this cardiac test. They say not to eat chocolate 24 hours before the test. But it will be about 19 hours before the test that I had equal to 1 chocolate bar..

Dipyridamole (generic name) Persantine (brand name) is used with other drugs to reduce the risk of blood clots after heart valve replacement. It works by preventing excessive blood clotting. Heart palpitations may be caused by caffeine. Hence eating a chocolate bar may affect ECG. Answered by Idella Holter 1 year ago.

Call the stress lab. My hospital is pretty strict about it as caffeine negatively affects the results of the test. Answered by Malissa Curzi 1 year ago.

What is a Persantine Myoview? and Why would a doctor run this type of test?
Asked by Kathrine Francesconi 1 year ago.

It is a nuclear medicine test using a "dye" that is given in an IV. It helps show if you have any blockage in your coronary arteries of your heart. These are the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle itself. If blockage is suspected then they may decide to do a heart catherization to get a better look at the arteries. When they do this they can put stents in the arteries to reopen them. Good luck and don't count your chickens until they are hatched!! Answered by Jarred Coric 1 year ago.

First of all information between a doctor and a patient is confidential so the results should come to you. Secondly it depends what the test is for. Normally labs only make specific tests based on the doctor's instructions. If he hasn't asked for an AIDS test they won't do one. If. however, you think you are infected seek professional help immediately. Talk to your doctor about your concerns. If you do have it, and God forbid you do, then what your Mom knows doesn't matter, but the treatment does. If she's loving and caring she will understand and support you. Good luck and best wishes. If you turn out to be tested negative, and i hope you do, make sure you keep away from the previous bad influences and things that can cause AIDS. Answered by Tandra Adamsen 1 year ago.

She did not have an allergic reaction, but it did increase her blood pressure, and then she had a sudden dropped in blood pressure. It scared her. Today, they want to do a persantine thallium stress test. Her lab work did not show any heart related problems to suggest she needs this test. She went to the ER with chronic stomach pain that she has had for several years. GI doctors can't find anything wrong, so the ER is suggesting it could be heart related with deferred pain. Her sodium level is very low suggesting possible thyroid, they are yet unsure why. My mother weighs 80 lbs. I am afraid for them to do this test.

The Persantine Thallium is very safe, I have worked in Cardiology for many years & have been a part of many PT Stress test & never have I witnessed a bad reaction. This medicine may make her feel bad while she is getting it, but the sensation that she feels will go away very soon after the test. They want to rule out the heart as a problem, esp. now that the GI Dr. can not find anything wrong. I think it is a good idea & will give them a lot of information about Coronary flow, meaning rule out any blockages in the heart causing the symptoms. She will do fine with this PT, it may make her feel ill, for a short time, but should very soon go away. Answered by Alesia Calcagino 1 year ago.

I have got a nuclear stress test about 5- years ago. I had to walk on a tread mill and they injected some radioactive substance and took pictures. This time when I took the same stress test, I was very much disappointed that I could not sweat or walk on the treadmill. Instead they injected a chemical called Persantine which dialated my heart vessels and then they injected rubidium -another radioactive substance before they took pictures with the PET (Positron Emission Tomography) before and after dialation. I am at a loss to understand that what would be difference or the effect of dialating vessels by natural way of walking on a treadmill and by injecting a chemical -called Persantine. They had to give an antidose of Aminophelene to neutralize the effect of persantine. They also told me that the radioactive substance will get out of your system within few minutes instead of in old time test where we had to drink a lot of water and pass it all out in the urine for 1-2 days. Answered by Letty Cunningan 1 year ago.

Most practicing cardiologists prefer a so-called chemical or nuclear stress tests to the standard treadmill stress test. The 1st advantage is that the chemical / nuclear stress test does not allow the individual to walk on a treadmill as many people are not able to do so. The 2nd advantage is that treadmill stress testing reports only electrocardiographic changes - the ECG has inherent limitations and may be normal when coronary artery disease is in fact present - while chemical / nuclear stress testing provides actual images. Dipyridamole (Persantine) does not dilate the heart nor does it dilate blood vessels. Adenosine, dipyridamole, and dobutamine are all utilized for such nuclear stress testing. What these drugs do is to 'stress' the heart in a sense as these drugs cause the heart to behave as if you had just walked on a treadmill. Simply because a substance is 'radioactive' does not mean that there are any health risks associated with its usage. I suspect that the test was a SPECT rather than a PET. SPECT is single photon emission computed tomography. PET scans are most often reserved to scan an individual with cancer looking for evidence of cancer cells throughout the body. I also suspect that you received aminophylline to negate or terminate the cardiovascular stress of the other drugs. If I may be of further assistance please let me know. I wish you the very best of health and happiness and in all things may God bless. JR Answered by Yuri Mcfolley 1 year ago.

I would like to know if anyone has had a persantine cardiolite stress test and what kind of reaction you had.?
I had a horrible reaction. I thought I was going to go into v-tach. I would just like to know if this is a common reaction. Asked by Frank Afflick 1 year ago.

Not unusual. That's why we almost never used persantine when I used to do them. Adenosine gives equally good results with lesser side effects that last a couple of minutes at most. Also, patients often need an "antidote" to counteract the side effects of the persantine. Answered by Tameika Mccool 1 year ago.

cholesteol and fat do not necessarily flow around with your blood that would make it to thick and cause severe circulation and swelling problems and possible need for amputation of extremities furthest from the heart some people have this condition called pvd peripheral vascular disease the cholesterol and fat collects and deposits inside your arteries like a water hose that gets caked up around in the insides so the flow is not as good as it should be and parts of these plaques may break off and cause a stroke or an aneurysm that can burst causing stroke or death also think of the hose becoming completely clogged this would cause a heart attack from lack of blood supply to the heart many people in their thirties die from heart attacks because they know best and they are fine and healthy and interpret their own lab results if you do not trust your doctor find a good cardiologist you trust and take care of your heart have that heart cath and prolong your life if you live in southern california area Dr. Togioka is an excellent cardiologist in inglewood Answered by Crystle Siders 1 year ago.


Caffine intake while having a chemical cardiac stress test using Dipyridamole, Persantine?
I'm having this cardiac test. They say not to eat chocolate 24 hours before the test. But it will be about 19 hours before the test that I had equal to 1 chocolate bar.. This shouldn't really affect the test right? Am I close enough on the ballpark to let it "fly". Asked by Elba Steenland 1 year ago.

let them know ahead of time. Answered by Sofia Rosine 1 year ago.

Dipyridamole (generic name) Persantine (brand name) is used with other drugs to reduce the risk of blood clots after heart valve replacement. It works by preventing excessive blood clotting. Heart palpitations may be caused by caffeine. Hence eating a chocolate bar may affect ECG. Answered by Lee Scisco 1 year ago.

Call the stress lab. My hospital is pretty strict about it as caffeine negatively affects the results of the test. Answered by Maragret Flemons 1 year ago.

They are usually pretty serious about the timeline. You'll want to call the office directly to make sure it's OK. Otherwise, it's a reschedule. Answered by Cordia Stoel 1 year ago.


What is a Persantine Myoview? and Why would a doctor run this type of test?
Asked by Burt Kakaviatos 1 year ago.

It is a nuclear medicine test using a "dye" that is given in an IV. It helps show if you have any blockage in your coronary arteries of your heart. These are the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle itself. If blockage is suspected then they may decide to do a heart catherization to get a better look at the arteries. When they do this they can put stents in the arteries to reopen them. Good luck and don't count your chickens until they are hatched!! Answered by Illa Gregorio 1 year ago.

First of all information between a doctor and a patient is confidential so the results should come to you. Secondly it depends what the test is for. Normally labs only make specific tests based on the doctor's instructions. If he hasn't asked for an AIDS test they won't do one. If. however, you think you are infected seek professional help immediately. Talk to your doctor about your concerns. If you do have it, and God forbid you do, then what your Mom knows doesn't matter, but the treatment does. If she's loving and caring she will understand and support you. Good luck and best wishes. If you turn out to be tested negative, and i hope you do, make sure you keep away from the previous bad influences and things that can cause AIDS. Answered by Loretta Grella 1 year ago.

My mother is very frail. Yesterday, in the ER they injected some contrast in her for a CT scan. She did not have an allergic reaction, but it did increase her blood pressure, and then she had a sudden dropped in blood pressure. It scared her. Today, they want to do a persantine thallium stress test. Her lab work did not show any heart related problems to suggest she needs this test. She went to the ER with chronic stomach pain that she has had for several years. GI doctors can't find anything wrong, so the ER is suggesting it could be heart related with deferred pain. Her sodium level is very low suggesting possible thyroid, they are yet unsure why. My mother weighs 80 lbs. I am afraid for them to do this test. Any ideas from health care professionals would be great, or any body who has had an elderly loved one take the test. Answered by Maudie Sabini 1 year ago.

There is a risk factor with any procedure, one must decide the benefit against the negative. My aunt who is 75 yrs old had the thallium stress test done last yr. with no ill effects. Answered by Yael Nicolais 1 year ago.

The Persantine Thallium is very safe, I have worked in Cardiology for many years & have been a part of many PT Stress test & never have I witnessed a bad reaction. This medicine may make her feel bad while she is getting it, but the sensation that she feels will go away very soon after the test. They want to rule out the heart as a problem, esp. now that the GI Dr. can not find anything wrong. I think it is a good idea & will give them a lot of information about Coronary flow, meaning rule out any blockages in the heart causing the symptoms. She will do fine with this PT, it may make her feel ill, for a short time, but should very soon go away. Answered by Fredricka Dahlberg 1 year ago.
