Cardiac Imaging / Heart Scan in Cabramatta

Cardiac Screening Cabramatta

Westside Medical Imaging is able to provide residents of the Cabramatta area with a heart scan. We can conduct a computed tomography (CT) cardiac scan using x-rays to create detailed pictures of the heart and its blood. It’s a diagnostic technique to investigate the state of your heart, discover any structural abnormalities, and find out the degree of any obstructed or blocked blood vessels.

This advanced test allows your doctor to assess how your heart is performing and helps them diagnose mild to severe heart disease. If there’s an issue, early therapeutic interventions from your doctor can follow, to help reduce your risk of a heart attack or other heart problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who benefits most from a heart scan?

Just about every adult. That’s because a heart scan is an accurate test that can help determine your future risk of heart attack or cardiovascular disease. That said, if you have pre-existing medical conditions or health concerns, you may have more to gain by having this scan. Speak to our team for more information.

What can I expect during the heart scan?

Before the examination commences you will lie on your back and be asked to hold your breath for a short period of time at various intervals. The scanning process is quiet, private, pain-free and takes less than 15 minutes. No injections are involved, there is no need to disrobe for the scan.

How should I dress for the scan?

You should wear comfortable clothes without metal closures, buttons or zippers. Women should try to wear a sports bra and avoid metal supports or underwires.
