Hvidovre Hospital starts PET-scanning cardiac patients with Rubidium-82

Congratulations Pernille Lemvig, Leading Medical Laboratory Technologist at Amager og Hvidovre Hospital.

The department of Clinical Physiology and Nuclear Medicine will start PET-scanning cardiac patients with Rubidium-82 this fall and will treat approximately 1000 patients each year. This examination can show both perfusion and blood flow in the myocardium, thereby diagnosing and controlling patients with heart disease.
