PET Scanning
Cardiologist in Los Angeles

Prevention of Heart Attack & Stroke

PET (positron emission tomography) scan is a type of imaging that can detect problems with the heart and blood vessels. PET scanning works by injecting a small amount of radioactive material into the body. The material collects in the heart, blood vessels, and soft tissues, following which the PET scanner creates images of the internal organs. This test allows our cardiologist in Los Angeles to determine if certain areas of the heart are not receiving enough blood, thus leading to a high risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Have A Healthy Heart

Heart Valve Surgery

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Despite this, heart disease is often preventable and controllable through proper diagnosis, imaging, and the management of cardiovascular risk factors. Some risk factors, like age, sex, and family history, cannot be changed, but some risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and obesity, are more controllable.

CT Scans

CT Coronary Calcium Scan

A CT coronary calcium scan is a specialized X-ray test used to detect the presence of calcium in the coronary arteries. Calcium is a marker for plaque, a buildup of fatty deposits that can narrow the arteries and impede blood flow to the heart. A CT scanner rotates around the body, taking multiple pictures of the heart and chest, following which the computer produces a score that reflects the amount of calcium in the coronary arteries, which then the cardiologist in Los Angeles can determine the potential risk of heart attacks or strokes.

A Thorough Inspection

CT Angiography

CT Angiography (CTA) is a diagnostic test that uses special X-ray equipment and intravenous (IV) contrast material to produce pictures of the blood vessels inside your body. CTA can detect blockages in the arteries that supply blood to the heart (coronary arteries), evaluate an aneurysm, and help the cardiologist determine if you have a high risk of strokes. If you have blockages in your coronary artery, your cardiologist may recommend additional tests or curate a personalized treatment plan to manage the risk.
