CT coronary angiography

A computed tomography coronary angiogram (CT/CA) is a non-invasive method for the detection of blockages within the coronary arteries. The CT Coronary Angiography  is usually the first-line investigation for the assessment of the coronary anatomy in low and intermediate risk patients.

CT/CA uses advanced CT technology along with intravenous contrast dye to acquire high resolution, 3D reconstructed images of the moving heart and great vessels. During this procedure, x-rays are projected through the body and are picked up by detectors in the scanner. The 3D images are reconstructed by sophisticated computer software. The physician is then able to determine the level of plaque and calcium burden within the walls of your heart arteries.
