The Cardiolite scans (Cardiolite is the trade name for sestamibi) are tests that show how well blood is flowing to various portions of the heart muscle. These tests, so-called "nuclear perfusion studies," are generally used in conjunction with stress tests to non-invasively detect the presence of coronary artery disease (CAD) that is producing partial obstructions in the coronary arteries.
