New Nuclear Cardiology Department
Pacific Medical Centers is pleased to announce the new Nuclear Cardiology Department at our First Hill Clinic. Our Nuclear Cardiology Department is led by Dr. Philip Massey and Dr. Jeff Gibbs with Dr. Keiko Aikawa.
"We are very excited to offer our patients a new state of the art stress test lab to aid in the detection and management of heart disease" stated Dr. Massey. "Our nuclear cardiology lab allows us to have an accurate method to diagnose ischemic heart disease and to measure heart function. Now we can perform both treadmill and non-treadmill stress testing with the latest imaging techniques. This will improve patient care by giving us a sensitive method to detect coronary artery disease and will streamline patient care by allowing referring providers more rapid access to cardiac stress testing."
Our nuclear cardiology laboratory has been granted accreditation by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Laboratories (ICANL). This accreditation recognizes PacMed for its commitment to high quality patient care and its provision of quality diagnostic testing. The ICANL, a non-profit organization, provides a peer review mechanism to encourage and recognize the provision of quality nuclear cardiology and nuclear medicine diagnostic evaluations by a process of voluntary accreditation.
