Radionuclide methods used in investigating cardiac functions are reviewed. The radiopharmaceuticals that were used for this purpose are surveyed in its historical outcome. Different scintigraphic techniques such as, first-pass and equilibrium studies, applied gamma camera systems, basic principles of computers which were used in this kind of examinations are explained. Points to be taken into consideration during imaging and patient preparation are specified.
