Nevada Heart and Vascular Center in Las Vegas is now offering PET for patients who require cardiac stress testing.

"Early detection of heart disease is a critical component in saving patients' lives," said William F. Resh, MD, a cardiologist at Nevada Heart. "PET imaging is much more effective at detecting cardiac disease and will make a dramatic difference in our ability to treat patients before their conditions become severe." He added that PET has a 95 percent accuracy rate in identifying early stages of heart disease.

The facility installed GE Healthcare’s PET Advance NXI.
