FAQ

CT cardiac angiography is a scan that records pictures of your heart. A contrast dye is injected before the test to obtain more clear information. The images help highlight the areas of blockages in the heart.

The CT angiography per se takes as little as a few minutes but the procedure as a whole might take about half an hour to complete. Some of the preparations start a few hours before the test.

Cardiac CT angiography is used to diagnose various heart conditions. The CCTA uses x-rays to produce pictures of the heart's blood vessels and heart. These images are studied to detect any abnormality.

 

The cardiac CT angiography technique is an advanced and modern version of traditionally performed angiography. Traditional angiography used a long hollow tube known as catheter that was inserted from the groin region and was more invasive than modernised CCTA which uses x-rays to produce pictures of the inside of the heart, hence rendering it a minimally invasive technique.

For the test, a contrast dye is injected into your body through your arm or hand. A computer is used with x-rays technology to produce images of the inside of your heart. These images help in performing the procedure.
