One of the tools this team has available is a 128-slice, high-resolution, low-radiation scanner that provides the clearest images yet of a beating heart. The Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA) scan provides at least twice the resolution of other scanners in the region, and it does so in half the time and with half the radiation exposure.

Additionally, it can be used for patients with elevated heart rates (without waiting for heartbeat-slowing medication to kick in) and larger patients.

This dedication to bringing the most advanced, powerful tools to bear in the fight against heart disease is another reason you can be confident in getting high quality care from this leading team.
