Cardiovascular Imaging and Vascular Radiology

Because the most effective treatment for heart disease is prevention.

Cardiovascular Imaging and Vascular Radiology use the latest technology for noninvasive imaging of the heart and vascular system, in both children and adults. Procedures such as Coronary CTA can literally save lives by identifying patients who need to make lifestyle changes to protect their future heart health, and can even identify patients who may be in need of further treatment, such as a stent. Coronary CTA is a non-invasive means of seeing the interior of the coronary arteries and can discover signs of heart disease not shown on an EKG or stress test. It is also safer, less invasive and more cost effective than cardiac catheterization. Coronary CTA is a procedure so advanced that only a handful of practices in the country hold the experience, expertise and technology to provide it.

Our sophisticated techniques provide three and four-dimensional views of complex cardiovascular anatomy and pathology. Cardiovascular imaging is  used to diagnose and assess:

  • Coronary heart disease
  • Heart failure or valve problems
  • Damage caused by a heart attack
  • Congenital heart defects (heart defects present at birth)
  • Pericarditis (a condition in which the membrane, or sac, around your heart is inflamed)
  • Cardiac tumors

If you have one or more of the following risk factors, you may be a candidate for Cardiovascular Imaging:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Smoking
  • Family History of Heart Disease
  • Overweight
  • High Stress
  • Sedentary Lifestyle
