CT Angiography (CTA) is used to see the arterial and venous vessels throughout your body. The speed and resolution of 64-Slice CTA allows physicians to view even the smallest of arteries in your brain, heart and peripheral vascular system. When a cardiologist needs to diagnose coronary artery disease, cardiac catheterization continues to be the best tool. However, the speed and sensitivity of 64-Slice CT now gives physicians a new way to view your heart and surrounding structures. Coronary CTA captures thousands of images of a beating heart in mere seconds. With exceptional detail, 64-Slice coronary CTA allows physicians to view calcified and non-calcified soft plaque in the coronary arteries.
Enjoy benefits of Stillwater Medical Center’s CT Angiography including:
Faster results – the exam is 15-30 minutes compared to 4-5 hours with traditional angiography.
More affordable than traditional angiography.
Less invasive than traditional cardiac catheterization.
Extensive applications for trauma situations when time matters.
