Different imaging modalities provide information on different aspects of cardiovascular disease, that's why there is a need for many different kinds of cardiac imaging. When it comes to advanced imaging, the Stormont Vail Cardiac Imaging and Rehabilitation Center is leading the pack.
Stormont Vail was one of the first hospitals in the U.S. to acquire a 64-slice CT scanner for use in diagnosing coronary artery disease. This new technology provides your cardiologist with 64 different images of the cardiovascular system in one shot.
Stormont Vail has multiple cardiologists who are trained to read these advanced CT images as well as two cardiologists trained in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as well as Magnetic Resonance Angioplasty (MRA).
Many patients with arterial disease are now able to forego surgery and instead treat their arterial disease through the use of MR and/or MRA. This imaging technique is a very useful way of finding problems with blood vessels and determining how to best treat those problems.
