What does a successful cardiac PET program look like?Take a look at Intermountain Healthcare.

Intermountain Healthcare is a nonprofit system of 22 hospitals serving patients in Utah and southeastern Idaho. Recently, it successfully expanded its nuclear cardiac program to include cardiac PET.

Clinical Impact

  • Providing information to cardiologists to help them eliminate unnecessary diagnostic cardiac catheterizations to focus on revascularization therapies.
  • Ability to do more percutaneous coronary interventions in the cath lab during the same time period.


Operational Impact

  • Ability to re-task the cardiac catheterization lab to focus on revascularization therapies for better efficiency.
  • Improved clinical accuracy supports cardiac PET volumes of 16-17 patients per day in a 10-hour period, which maintains a profitable service line.
