CT Imaging

Using computed tomography (“CAT scan”) and advanced computer software, we can now obtain an image of the beating heart. This allows your physician to obtain detailed information about the structure of your heart and coronary arteries, which until recently, was only available by cardiac angiogram. The extent of arterial calcification can also be determined using this procedure and is an important early indicator of the presence of arterial disease. This discovery may lead to treatment that will prevent a heart attack.
