What is an ejection fraction
An ejection fraction is a diagnostic examination that measures how much blood the heart is pumping out. By adding a radioactive substance to your blood vessel, we can use a scintillation camera to see how well your heart works. The radioactive substance will circulate through your heart and can be used to calculate your ejection fraction. There are no side effects: the radioactive substance will not hurt you and will leave the body through urination.
The procedure will take 30 minutes.
