4 Benefits of HeartFlow Coronary Imaging

If you are looking for a more accurate way to diagnose coronary artery disease, HeartFlow® may be the answer.

This test can help your doctor determine if you have coronary artery disease and how severe it is. Here are four benefits of HeartFlow coronary imaging from Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology in New York:

Reduce Unnecessarily Invasive Testing

Many CAD tests before HeartFlow were uncomfortable and invasive. With HeartFlow’s non-invasive test, you can get the information your doctor needs without putting yourself through an uncomfortable procedure.

Avoid Unnecessary Heart Catheterizations

HeartFlow imaging can help your doctor avoid unnecessary heart catheterizations. A heart cath is a more invasive CAD test that involves inserting a catheter into your heart. HeartFlow imaging can often provide the same information as a heart cath without the risk or discomfort.

Determine the Optimal Treatment Pathway

HeartFlow imaging can help your doctor determine the best course of treatment for you. HeartFlow provides detailed information about the severity of your CAD and how it is affecting your heart. This information can help your doctor tailor a treatment plan that is right for you.

Minimize Your Radiation Exposure

HeartFlow® is an imaging program that takes the data gathered during a normal CT scan, analyzes it, and creates an accurate 3D model, which means you will be exposed to less radiation than you would with additional CT scans. If you are worried about your radiation exposure, HeartFlow is a safe and effective option.
