It is a clinical base of the scientific subdivision of the Department of Nuclear Medicine.

Main areas of clinical activities of the department are as follows:

  • Myocardial scintigraphy, assessment of central hemodynamics, myocardial contractility and perfusion in patients with coronary artery disease and non-coronarogenic heart damage according to functional tests at rest and stress.
  • Performance of dynamic scintigraphy of the kidneys to study functional state of the kidneys.
  • The evaluation of the pulmonary ad central hemodynamics in patients with acute myocardial infarction, congenital and acquired heart diseases.
  • Scintigraphic studies of the liver, lungs, skeletal system, etc.
  • Computed tomography of the congenital heart diseases, coronary artery diseases, evaluation of states of coronary stents and bypasses in patients who underwent myocardial revascularization.
  • Computed tomography of major and peripheral vessels.

List of methods of studies:

1.1. radionuclide methods of study:


  • ECG-synchronized SPECT of the myocardium with 99mTc-Technetril in stress test and at rest (preparation: avoiding caffeine- and potassium-rich foods from the day before the study)
  • Scintigraphy pf the myocardium with 99mTc-pyrophosphate
  • Radionuclide equilibrium ventriculography;
  • Lung perfusion scintigraphy
  • Thyroid scintigraphy (preparation: avoiding intake of iodine-containing drugs for 30 days prior to the date of the study)
  • Salivary gland scintigraphy (sialoscintigraphy)
  • Parathyroid scintigraphy
  • Static scintigraphy of the liver
  • Dynamic scintigraphy of the kidneys
  • Radionuclide cardiopulmonary angiography
  • Osteoscintigraphy
  • Lymphoscintigraphy

1.2. Multislice Helical Computed Tomography (MHCT) studies

  • MHCT-coronarography (coronary bypass angiography)
  • Са-scoring (indexing of coronary caclium)
  • MHCT-aortography
  • MHCT-ventriculography
  • MHCT of the pulmonary veins and the left atrium
  • MHCT of thoracic organs
  • MHCT of carotid arteries and cerebral blood vessels
  • MHCT of lower extremities
