With cardiovascular imaging, doctors are now able to discover heart disease earlier and more accurately than ever before. With the use of specialized diagnostic equipment, doctors can provide precise, detailed examinations of the cardiovascular system.
Cardiovascular Imaging Techniques
These non-invasive procedures allow physicians to view a patient’s cardiovascular system and heart with a high level of clarity and detail in order to scan for, prevent or treat disease.
Procedures available include:
- Cardiac computed tomography (CT), used for coronary calcium scoring and angiography
- Echocardiography, used for stress, contrast, transesophageal and two- and three-dimensional testing
- Vascular ultrasound, used to study various areas of the cardiovascular system and examine for venous or arterial concerns
These treatments are safe and effective for patients across a wide range of ages, and they allow the use of technology to monitor, treat and evaluate cardiac and vascular health.
