Cardiac Imaging

With the help of cardiac imaging, which plays a vital role in diagnosing and managing coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death in Australia, we can better understand the gradual buildup of fatty deposits on the inner walls of the coronary arteries. This condition leads to the constriction and impaired function of these essential arteries responsible for supplying blood to the heart muscles. Consequently, individuals may experience angina (chest pain) or be at risk of a heart attack due to the compromised blood flow to the heart. It is crucial to highlight that the development of arterial plaque commences early in life and can progress significantly by middle age.

Cardiac CT, a non-invasive procedure, offers valuable insights into the heart and coronary arteries, serving as an alternative to more invasive cardiac catheterization. Additionally, at Apex Radiology, we specialize in two key cardiac CT tests: CT coronary angiography (CTCA) and coronary artery calcium scoring (CACS). These tests are performed using our cutting-edge CT scanners, conveniently located at South West Health Campus in Bunbury and Peel Health Campus in Mandurah.
