Coronary CTA Scan
With the advancement of CT scanners, this technology is being used to identify and diagnose diseases and conditions affecting the flow of blood in veins and arteries throughout the body in patients with and without symptoms. Typical vessels examined include those serving the brain and those bringing blood to the heart, lungs, kidneys, arms, and legs. Compared to traditional catheter angiography, CTA is much less invasive, more patient-friendly and in many cases presents a cost effective alternative that delivers better detail and more information.
Heart Disease is the nation’s number one killer, claiming nearly one million lives annually. According to the Mississippi State Department of Health, Mississippi’s Cardiovascular Disease mortality is the highest in the nation, with a mortality rate in 2000 that was 29% higher than the U.S. as a whole. More Mississippians die each year from CVD than from all types of cancer, traffic injuries, suicides and AIDS combined. Knowing your personal risks and regulating your behavior accordingly are as crucial to cardiac health as the most advanced diagnosis and treatment methods.
People often think of heart failure is a heart attack. However, heart failure simply means the heart isn’t pumping blood as well as it should be. If the heart can’t properly circulate blood throughout the body, cells don’t get the oxygen they need which can lead to many side effects.
Coronary Artery Disease
Coronary artery disease is caused by plaque buildup along the walls of the coronary arteries, the arteries that supply blood to your heart. Over time, the plaque buildup could cause narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries, a major reason for a heart attack and heart failure.
