Reviews for Sestamibi
Cardiolite (sestamibi) for Diagnosis and Investigation: "Two weeks after taking cardiolite in my nuclear stress test, my shortness of breath became worse and I became very weak. Since my nuclear stress test turned out to be normal, I thought it was my lungs. I ignored it until I became very very weak after a month and was rushed to the emergency. My hemoglobin count was 4 and I had to have blood transfusion. They did not see any slow bleeding in my body that must have caused that sudden loss of blood. This nuclear stress test with cardiolite was the only different factor that was done in one month that I loss so much blood. When I called my doctor's office about this weakness and shortness of breath, they said it should have happened right after the test and not 2 weeks after."
