A Cardiac CTA is a non-invasive scan for evaluating the coronary arteries--the vessels that supply blood to the heart. Plaque is a build-up of fat, calcium, and other substances which can narrow or even close off blood flow to the heart resulting in painful angina (chest pain), heart attack or sudden death.
CT (computed tomography) scan is a noninvasive medical test that uses special X-ray equipment to create multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body.
All CT exams require a physician order and may require insurance pre-authorization. Outpatient CT exams are generally by appointment. Walk in or urgent cases will be accommodated.
Patients will be given specific instructions for their exams at the time of scheduling.
