HeartCare360 is now using new and improved technology, CT scanner- a 64-slice LightSpeed VCT. HearCare360 is one of the few practices in cardiology which is offering such advanced technology as diagnostic equipment. This allows specialized testing with lesser exposure to radiation keeping the patients safe and allowing better and improved diagnosis.
The new system allows the users to get information about life-threatening diseases. The diagnosis of peripheral vascular disease, cardiovascular disease, chest pains and stroke are all easily diagnosed and advance technology is time effective as well.
The CT scanner can capture the images of a beating heart in approx five heartbeats or of an organ in less than a second. The technology is twice as fast as compared to the conventional multi-slice scanners. It provides a great way to act on time for anything heart illness, which ignored can create great risk. Thus, the invested is done by HearCare360 keeping in mind the patients conditions, the need for early detection of coronary heart disease and timely and effective service to patients.
The advanced technology allows one to undertake the CST (Calcium Score Test). The test measures the amount of calcium which has been deposited in the coronary arteries. The coronary arteries are the ones that carry blood to the heart, the deposit of calcium can hinder their performance in doing so. The CT scanners calcium score test here can be used as a prime indicator of the risk if any of heart disease.
