We offer a cardiac imaging service which can enable the detection of calcium and plaque like deposits within the coronary arteries. The coronary arteries are the blood vessels that supply oxygen to the heart and narrowing of these vessels by calcium or fatty deposits increases your risk of developing Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), which can lead to a heart attack. Coronary artery calcium scoring is useful as an adjunct in predicting coronary events in addition to cholesterol and other risk factor evaluation.
Coronary CT angiography is a non-invasive test that can provide detailed information about the coronary arteries in helping to guide management of patients who are experiencing heart related symptoms, including those with previous stents or grafts.
Cardiac MRI is available as an advanced tool to characterise many abnormalities in the heart, including decision making for difficult or uncertain diagnoses.
