From Astellas: Very Helpful Resources for Your Patients
The good folks who brought us Lexiscan have some truly excellent resources available online for you to give to your Nuclear Cardiology patients.
Some of their PDFs explain how to prepare how to prepare for the test, and others educate about Nuclear Stress Testing & Coronary Artery Disease in general.
All of their PDFs are very polished, in full color, and are available in English and in Spanish.
Furthermore, you can take advantage of a feature where you can upload your practice’s name, address and logo so that they will all appear on the first page of the PDFs. I tried it, and this feature actually works perfectly.
If you’ve got a color printer, you can easily give your patients first-class educational resources (or even with a b&w printer.)

Astellas’ site is very easy to navigate.
However I would like to point out in the image below exactly how you can download their documents without customizing them first. It can be a little difficult to spot that link.
