CT Coronary Angiogram
A computerized tomography (CT) coronary angiogram is an imaging test that looks at the arteries that supply blood to the heart. The test is used to diagnose a variety of heart conditions.
The procedure is non-invasive and does not require recovery time.
A CT coronary angiogram is mainly used to check for narrowed or blocked arteries in the heart (coronary artery disease). However, it can check for other heart conditions.
A CT coronary angiogram differs from a standard coronary angiogram. The traditional procedure (non-CT angiogram) uses a flexible tube (catheter) threaded through the groin or arm to the heart or coronary arteries. For those with known coronary artery disease, the traditional approach can also be used as treatment.
The examination lasts 10-15 minutes.
