The cardiac imaging process is non-invasive, meaning your doctor can get the results he or she needs without any pain.
A cardiac imaging CT scan takes pictures of the soft tissue of your heart, allowing your doctor to see the various parts and determine how well they are functioning. Cardiac imaging CT scans are used to diagnose a wide variety of cardiac conditions including calcium buildup in your blood vessels.
As with all CT scans you will be exposed to a small dose of radiation during the imaging test; however, your CT scan will give your doctor crucial information about your cardiac health. We always use the lowest dose of radiation possible in our CT scans to keep you safe and healthy during imaging.
