Western Reserve Heart Care Receives ICANL Nuclear Medicine Accreditation
Date:3/27/2008

Heart Care Practice in Hudson is the Only Lab in Summit County Outside of

Akron Accredited for Both Nuclear Medicine and Echocardiography

HUDSON, Ohio, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Western Reserve Heart Care, a cardiology testing and treatment facility located in Hudson, was recently granted accreditation as a nuclear medicine lab by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Laboratories (ICANL). The accreditation makes Western Reserve Heart Care the only ICANL and ICAEL accredited outpatient nuclear medicine and echocardiography lab in the local area of Stow, Tallmadge, Hudson, Streetsboro, Twinsburg, and Solon.

"Receiving the ICANL nuclear medicine accreditation is a huge achievement for any practice," explained Dr. Emil Hayek, founder of Western Reserve Heart Care. "We are especially thrilled to have received both the nuclear medicine and the echocardiography accreditations in our first year in business."

Western Reserve Heart Care offers both adenosine and exercise treadmill nuclear stress tests. Nuclear stress testing is a complex imaging technique that uses non-harmful radioisotopes to diagnose heart disease. The patient is given a small dose of radioisotopes that can be detected externally with a special camera. The physician can then diagnose illnesses through the movements of the radioactive material. The ICANL program evaluates the credentials of the physician and technologists, the quality of the equipment in use at the lab, as well as the quality of the images recorded for interpretation and the skill of the staff interpreting the results.

The ICANL was established with the support of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and the American Society of Nuclear Cardiologists to provide a peer review mechanism to encourage and recognize the provision of quality nuclear diagnostic evaluations by a process of voluntary accreditation.

Western Reserve Heart Care received its echocardiography accreditation from the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL) in December 2007.

Dr. Emil Hayek is the Founder of Western Reserve Heart Care. He is the Medical Director of the Heart and Vascular Center at Akron General Medical Center and Assistant Professor of Medicine, Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine. He is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Disease, Echocardiography, and Nuclear Cardiology.

Western Reserve Heart Care's friendly environment and in-house equipment provide a much less stressful alternative to a hospital visit. The facility itself was designed with patient comfort in mind, with ample parking and comfortable patient waiting areas. The office is located at 1335 Corporate Drive in Hudson, across from JoAnn's headquarters. For more information visit http://www.WesternReserveHeartCare.com or call 330-342-0806. Most insurances are accepted.
