Cardiovascular Imaging

One of our specialties is noninvasive cardiovascular imaging, which includes CT and MR imaging of the heart and vascular system. A total of 7 radiologists, each with their own skill set, make up our cardiovascular (CV) imaging division.

Since only the most high-tech equipment will do, we use 8-, 16-, and 64-row helical CT scanners and two MR systems optimized for cardiovascular applications, as well as a variety of dedicated CV imaging software.

Our CV imaging division performs many peripheral CT angiography procedures including:

· CT Aortography for the evaluation of aortic trauma

· Aortic aneurysms and aortic stent grafts

· CT runoff angiography for the evaluation of claudication and lower extremity ischemia

· Carotid CT angiography

We are also actively pursuing cardiac CT for the evaluation of wall motion abnormalities, congenital defects and masses.

On our constant quest for information, we perform and share the results of a regular number of cardiac MRI exams for clinical and research studies, including analysis of ischemic heart disease, congenital defects, cardiac masses and right ventricular dysplasia. ARA.
