Nuclear Cardiology is now important in clinical field and is practiced widely abroad. In our country, the Philippine Heart Center for Asia (PHCA) is one of the few institutions with adequate facilities and instrumentation for the application of this specialty. The last decade has witnessed the growth in this field as shown by the numerous researches and publications in different journals especially so with the advent of computer technology application in Nuclear Medicine
In the last ten years, the researches done in the department of Nuclear medicine PHCA dealt mostly with non-invasive diagnostic studies involving coronary artery diseases with a few researches involving valvular heart disease. These diagnostic studies utilized Thallium 201 for myocardial perfusion, Technetium-99m pyrophosphate for acute infarct imaging and gated cardiac blood pool studies, and Technetium macroaggregated albumin for regional myocardial perfusion in conjunction with coronary arteriography
