Dear Inquirer! There is no long waiting time in our private clinic, you can book an appointment for a CT scan even today! Don’t wait for your condition to get worse, give us a call now!

Cardio CT examination for the early detection and treatment of coronary stenosis and plaques contributes greatly to the prevention of myocardial infarction.

With the help of the appropriate software and with modern equipment, we are able to scan the heart and coronary arteries with submillimeter accuracy even without invasive intrusion.

BENEFITS OF THE INVESTIGATION

  • According to the statistics, the method for the detection of coronary plaques and stenoses is the so-called negative predictive value of almost 100%, which means that patients who do not require further testing and have a low risk of infarction can be selected with great certainty.
  • However, where we can determine a significant narrowing, interventional cardiologists can purposefully examine the given vascular segment during catheterization, and respectively plan for any expansion.
  • Coronary calcification is first determined during a Cardio CT scan. If this reaches a certain level, we may immediately recommend cardiac catheterization, as the likelihood of coronary heart disease can be very high.
  • This X-ray contrast agent is delivered to the patient's vein and images of the heart and coronaries are being taken. Finally, a CT scan of the entire chest is performed, which may reveal even previously unrecognized but important changes (tumors).

PREPARATIONS FOR THE TEST

It is important that patients skip metformin-containing medicines that lower their blood sugar 3 days before the test, and drink plenty of fluids before and after the test.

PREGNANCY AND CARDIO CT

The test is not recommended for pregnant women with severe renal impairment.
