Cardiac CT Imaging
If you have heart disease, your doctor may order a Computed Tomography (CT) scan of your heart. If so, consider Augusta University Heart and Cardiovascular Services in Augusta, GA. We use special 64-slice CT scans are to generate a very clear, three-dimensional image of the heart and great vessels.
