Since the turn of the 19th century, cardiovascular disease has become the number one killer in the United States. Many modalities are available for the assessment of coronary artery disease (CAD). Cardiovascular imaging methods such as Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR) and Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (CVCT) are allowing physicians to take a closer look at the heart and great vessels at little risk to the patient.
The Center for Cardiovascular Imaging at Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center is jointly staffed by both cardiologists and radiologists with extensive cardiac imaging expertise who diagnose heart and blood vessel problems using the most advanced noninvasive and minimally invasive approaches. Our imaging technologists are specially trained in cardiovascular imaging and are registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and licensed with the Texas Department of Health (TDH).
