At Zwanger-Pesiri, our team of experts is committed to providing the highest level of care and expertise in heart disease diagnosis and treatment planning. One of the innovative tools we use is HeartFlow CT, a cutting-edge technology that allows for the visualization of blood flow in the heart. This exam can play a critical role in the diagnosis and treatment of various cardiac conditions. Our goal is to ensure that our patients receive accurate and informative results in a comfortable and stress-free environment.

What Is Heartflow CT?

HeartFlow CT is a non-invasive imaging test that uses advanced computer algorithms and 3D imaging to create a virtual model of the heart's blood vessels. By analyzing blood flow patterns in the coronary arteries, HeartFlow CT provides valuable information about the presence of blockages, which can lead to heart attacks. This exam is an important diagnostic tool for patients with suspected or known coronary artery disease.

It is a safer alternative to invasive procedures such as angiography and can provide a clear and comprehensive picture of the heart's blood vessels without the need for any incisions. The results from HeartFlow CT can help guide the treatment plan for patients and lead to better outcomes for those living with heart disease.

The HeartFlow CT exam is performed using a state-of-the-art CT scanner. Before the exam, the patient will be positioned on the exam table and a contrast material will be administered intravenously. The CT scanner will then be used to produce a series of images of the heart and its blood vessels. The HeartFlow software then uses these images to create a virtual 3D model of the patient's coronary arteries, providing a detailed evaluation of blood flow and blockages.

Once the virtual model is created, our team of radiologists will review and analyze the results to determine the presence of any blockages or stenosis in the coronary arteries. This information can then be used by the referring physician to make informed treatment decisions for the patient. The Heartflow CT exam is an important tool for the early detection and management of heart disease.
