Coronary CT Angiography (CTA)
Coronary CT angiography (CTA) is a minimally invasive diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a state- of-the-art CT scanner to provide high-speed X-ray images of literally hundreds of cross-sectional views of your body to yield detailed images of the blood flowing through the veins and arteries.
When the CT scanner completes its programmed scan of the particular area that needs to be studied, a powerful computer takes the digitally stored data from the images and reconstructs them in 3D. This allows the radiologist to view your anatomy from any angle without having the image blocked by intervening structures.
The images presented provide extremely accurate information for the radiologist to make a diagnosis so your cardiologist and or physician can treat you.
