Cardiac CTA produces three-dimensional images that are used to evaluate patients for coronary artery disease (CAD). Calcium scoring is available for CAD risk assessment.
CT Angiography (CTA)
CTA is a minimally invasive procedure that uses computed tomography (CT) scan to generate high-resolution images of the inside of a patient’s blood vessels. A contrast material (dye) is injected into the patient. As the dye flows through the blood vessels, the CT scan generates a map of the blood vessels, providing valuable information about the nature and extent of any blockages.
Energy produced by radioactive material allows cardiac imaging and heart specialists to see images of the heart’s structure and function. This procedure helps in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of diseases, including cancer, heart disease, and other abnormalities.
