Cardiac CT Angiography (CTA)
Patients now have access to some of the most advanced imaging technology that can scan for and detect heart disease in the coronary vessels without the need for invasive procedures. Patients benefiting from a coronary screening are those with:
- High Blood Pressure
- Elevated LDL and Low HDL
- A History of Smoking
- A family history of heart disease
Those with known coronary pathology would also benefit from this imaging technology since CCTA is useful in the evaluation of coronary artery bypass grafts, stents for patency and re-stenosis. CCTA is used in pre-op pulmonary ablation evalutations and to examine congenital heart defects and aneurysms for treatment. For more information or to schedule an exam, please call 818-708-5593.
