MUGA, also referred to as equilibrium radionuclide angiogram or blood pool scan, uses a computer to "scan" the heart (both at rest and during exercise) to determine its size and function. The MUGA test captures images of the heart chambers and major blood vessels to evaluate the pumping function of the ventricles.
