Powerful Prognostic Indicator

Ammonia N-13 with CFR

Ammonia N-13 with CFR is a strong predictor of patient outcomes. CFR offers improved risk stratification and has proven to be an independent predictor of adverse outcomes. The results of one study on the long-term prognostic value of Ammonia N-13 with CFR demonstrated that an abnormal CFR, regardless of normal or abnormal perfusion images, was associated with higher adverse cardiac events. Conversely, a normal perfusion along with a normal CFR suggested a 3-year “warranty” period. 3

Consider adding a cardiac PET program to your current service line. cardiac PET can be a quality solution for ensuring lower healthcare costs while improving patient outcomes.
