Test Details
Test Code:NM0006
Test Name:MUGA- Radionuclide Ventriculography (Resting)
Test Details & Preparation
Radionuclide ventriculography (RVG, RNV) or radionuclide angiography (RNA) is often referred to as a MUGA (multiple-gated acquisition) scan. It is a type of nuclear imaging test. This scan shows how well your heart is pumping.

A MUGA scan is a test using a radioactive tracer (called a radionuclide) and a special camera to take pictures of your heart as it pumps blood. The test measures how well your heart pumps with every heartbeat. The test is called “multi-gated” because a gamma camera takes pictures at specific times during each heartbeat. The test may be done while you stay still (resting scan), exercise or both. The test measures your ejection fraction, which is the amount of blood pumped out of the heart during each heartbeat (contraction). It’s usually expressed as a percentage.

Your doctor may want to check how well your heart pumps blood. A MUGA scan helps your doctor learn more about why you may be having chest pain, trouble breathing, dizziness and tiredness.

Your doctor may use this scan if other tests (like ECG) showed you may have a heart problem. It will show your doctor how much blood the heart pumps with each beat. Your heart may not be pumping enough blood to meet your body’s needs. This is called heart failure.

During the MUGA scan, a small amount of a radioactive substance or tracer (called a radionuclide) is put into your blood. The tracer attaches to your red blood cells. A gamma camera takes pictures of your heart. This lets doctors see the blood inside your heart’s pumping chambers (ventricles). The pictures are taken at the same time during each heartbeat (ECG-gated).

For a “resting” scan, your doctor may ask you to avoid drinks containing alcohol or caffeine such as coffee, tea or soft drinks for several hours before the test. For an “exercise” scan, don’t eat or drink anything except water for 4 hours before your test. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and comfortable shoes. Your doctor will explain any changes in your medicine that you may need to make to prepare for the scan.
