Diagnostic Procedures: Heart Watch Program
Cedars-Sinai's Department of Cardiac Imaging provides cardiac health screenings using three-dimensional moving pictures to measure the amount of hardening of the arteries in the heart and determine the patient's risk for coronary artery disease.
Our Dual Source CT scanner has two X-ray tubes oriented at 90 degrees to one another. This allows us to obtain the 180 degrees of information required for tomography in half the time of a standard, fast (64-slice) CT. Our images can be obtained in 83 milliseconds.
