Cardiac imaging subspecialists focus on imaging designed to manage heart disorders and assess the structure and function of the heart. They are a vital part of the process used to catch and treat heart disorders in their earliest stages, ensuring the health and safety of the patient.

Common cardiac imaging techniques include cardiac MRI, CT coronary angiography, calcium scoring, SPECT and PET/CT. Cardiac MRI is particularly helpful in determining the extent of a heart attack, delineating between irreversible heart damage and heart tissue at risk of irreversible damage. It can also determine cardiac infections, as well as evaluate blood flow, heart function, valves and defects.

Cardiac MRI | Without using any X-Rays or radiation, this exam can help our doctors to see the structure and function of the heart muscle.

Chest X-Ray | Using small amounts of radiation, this exam produces images of your heart, lungs, blood vessels, airways and the bones of your chest and spine which helps our doctors view arterial and ventricular size and shape.

Coronary CTA | This non-invasive exam provides detailed pictures of the heart and its surrounding blood vessels, which our doctors use to help determine if plaque buildup has narrowed a patient’s coronary arteries, the blood vessels that supply the heart.

CT | Computed Tomography (CT) is a diagnostic test that, like traditional x-rays, produces multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body. CT images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels typically provide greater detail than traditional x-rays, particularly of soft tissues and blood vessels.
