Cardiac CTA (Computed Tomographic Angiography) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses x-rays to produce multidimensional images of the heart and its blood vessels. It’s useful in determining if plaque has developed in the coronary arteries.
Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses a large magnet & radio waves to produce high-quality, detailed images of the heart and blood vessels. It is used to help diagnose and/or further evaluate many different conditions, such as Congenital heart disease, coronary artery disease, and others.
Cardiac PET (Positron Emission Tomography) is an advanced nuclear imaging test that uses a special dye containing radioactive tracers to create pictures of the heart. The images are used to assess the blood flow of the heart and can also show healthy and damaged area of the heart.
