Professional CT Coronary Angiography Scan and CT Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring

 



Description:

At Metro Radiology, the professional CT Coronary Angiography scans in Brisbane are performed to examine the arteries of the heart (coronary arteries) to exclude significant blockages using state-of-the-art multi-slice CT technology.

The CT Coronary Angiography involves an injection of X-ray dye into the veins (intravenous iodinated contrast) during the scan. This scan is described as non-invasive, and offers as an alternative to the more invasive catheter Coronary Angiography in eligible patients.

Metro Radiology’s professional CT Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring in Brisbane measures the amount of calcium in the walls of your coronary arteries using state-of-the-art multi-slice CT technology. This shows the degree of hardening of your arterial wall (atherosclerosis), and provides risk stratification for events of heart attack and stroke in the future.
