Each year about 1.5 million Americans will have a heart attack with absolutely no warning signs.  For about half of those, the heart attack will be fatal.  The cardiac 64 CT scan provides 3-D images of the heart so detailed heart disease can be detected even at the earliest stages. It is in the earliest stages that heart disease is the most treatable.

Conventional angiography has been the diagnostic standard for determining heart disease (coronary artery disease).  Over a million conventional angiographies are performed in the United States each year approximately 30% of these procedures reveal no abnormality or an abnormality that does not require surgery.  While effective, angiograms are invasive, labor intensive and costly. Hundreds of thousands of Americans unnecessarily have conventional angiograms.  These limitations have led to the need for a less invasive and less expensive test. 


For many doctors and patients, the 64 CT scanner provides the opportunity to rule out the need for a conventional angiogram.   It is none invasive and does not have the same risk of complications (such as heart attack, stroke, and bleeding) that can sometimes occur with conventional angiogram.  Since, less invasive patient can resume their normal activities immediately following the test.

The new 64 cardiac imaging procedure has proven to be a breakthrough in technology for the diagnosis of heart disease. The procedure is safe, fast, lasting approximately 10 minutes, and is non-invasive. Speed is extremely important in our ability to "freeze" the heart. Currently the 64 CT utilized at HeartSavers  is the fastest scanner in the industry.
