Computed tomography (CT) uses x-rays and computer reconstruction to generate high resolution 3-dimensional images of the coronary arteries and heart.
East River Medical Imaging employs the latest CT technology. Our machines employ advanced algorithms to reduce radiation dose and metallic artifact producing the most diagnostic images with the least amount of x-rays.
This is a specialized x-ray test performed on a CT scanner which detects and measures calcified plaque in your coronary arteries.Â Plaque can cause restricted blood flow and decreased oxygen delivery to your heart muscle which can cause chest pain (angina). Plaque also has the potential to rupture and cause a heart attack (myocardial infarction).
The information obtained from this test can help your doctor determine your risk level and decide on a treatment plan including lifestyle changes and/or medication.
The HeartFlow Analysis is an advanced test that assesses coronary artery disease. It shows how each blockage impacts blood flow to your heart which in turn helps your physician determine the best treatment for you.
