Tests & Procedures

Tests and Procedures: R

  • Resting Myocardial Perfusion Scan

    Myocardial perfusion is an imaging test. It's also called a nuclear stress test. It is done to show how well blood flows through the heart muscle. It also shows how well the heart muscle is pumping. For example, after a heart attack, it may be done to find areas of damaged heart muscle. This test may be done during rest and while you exercise.

  • Resting Radionuclide Angiogram

    Resting RNA is a nuclear medicine procedure in which a tiny amount of radioactive tracer is injected and recorded as it moves through the heart. This test helps doctors evaluate how well the heart pumps and how much blood is pumped with each beat.

  • Retic Count

    This test measures the number of reticulocytes in your blood. It can be used to diagnose anemia and find out why you have a disease.

  • Retrograde Cystography

    Retrograde cystography is an imaging test that uses X-rays to see the bladder. X-rays are made of the bladder after it has been filled with a contrast dye. The dye lets the radiologist see your organ or tissues more clearly.

  • Retrograde Pyelogram

    A retrograde pyelogram is an imaging test that uses X-rays to look at your bladder, ureters, and kidneys. The ureters are the long tubes that connect your kidneys to your bladder. This test is usually done during a test called cystoscopy. It uses an endoscope, which is a long, flexible, lighted tube. During a cystoscopy, the healthcare provider can inject contrast dye directly into the ureters. The contrast helps parts of the body show up more clearly on an X-ray. The exam is performed under anesthesia.

  • Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement

    A reverse total shoulder replacement is a special type of shoulder replacement surgery. It allows your surgeon to remove the damaged parts of the shoulder and replace them with artificial components.

  • Rh Typing

    Rh typing is very important during pregnancy. If you are Rh negative and your baby is Rh positive, you may have an Rh incompatibility.

  • Rheumatoid Factor (Blood)

    This test measures the level of a substance called rheumatoid factor in your blood. It helps your healthcare provider find out whether you have rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Right Heart Catheterization

    Right heart catheterization allows a surgeon to use a small, thin hollow tube called a catheter to examine your heart.

  • Right Heart Catheterization with Heart Tissue Biopsy

    In a right-heart catheterization with heart tissue biopsy, your doctor takes tissue samples directly from your heart muscle.
