Cardiac CT

Cardiac computed tomography, or cardiac CT, is a painless test that uses an X-ray machine and computers to take clear, detailed pictures of the heart. This test is used to look for problems in the heart.

During a cardiac CT scan, an X-ray machine moves around your body in a circle. The machine takes pictures of each part of the heart. A computer assembles the pictures into a 3D image. Contrast material is used to help highlight the area being studied.
