Cardiac Computed Tomography

Coronary Computed Tomography Angiogram (CCTA) is a heart-imaging test that determines if deposits have built up in the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart muscle. If left untreated, these areas of build-up, referred to as plaque, can cause heart muscle disease.

 

CRL’s lead Cardiac CT Radiologist, Dr. Robin Parker, states that, “With coronary artery disease being the single leading cause of death in America, this simple non-invasive CT scan to evaluate for coronary artery stenosis can benefit millions of patients.” The main indication for CCTA is to evaluate for coronary artery stenosis in low-to-intermediate risk patients with chest pain.
