Cardiovascular Imaging | Patient Services

Non-invasive cardiovascular imaging studies we perform include:

Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR) Imaging

  • Ischemic heart disease
  • Viability assessment
  • Stress testing
  • Evaluating cardiac function and determining causes of heart failure
  • Assessing congenital heart disease
  • Characterizing cardiac tumors
  • Confirming causes of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy
    • Dilated cardiomyopathy
    • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
    • Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia
    • Cardiac amyloidosis
    • Cardiac sarcoidosis
    • Left ventricular non-compaction cardiomyopathy
    • Iron-overload cardiomyopathy
    • Myocarditis
    • Endomyocarial fibrosis
  • Evaluating pericardial diseases including constrictive pericarditis
  • Assessing the pulmonary veins prior to pulmonary vein isolation in patients with atrial fibrillation

 

Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA)

Chest, Abdomen and Pelvis

  • pulmonary embolus
  • aortic aneurysms
  • dissections, intramural hematoma and penetrating atherosclerotic ulcers
  • vasculitis
  • renal artery stenosis, including fibromuscular dysplasia
  • mesenteric ischemia
  • Pelvic congestion syndrome

 

Extremities

  • acute and chronic peripheral vascular disease
  • vascular malformations
  • popliteal entrapment syndrome
  • thoracic outlet syndrome
  • deep venous thrombosis, including May-Thurner syndrome and Paget-Schroetter Syndrome

 

Coronary and Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA)

  • coronary artery disease
  • anomalous coronary arteries
  • congenital heart disease
  • evaluation of patients prior to transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)

 

Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA)

Chest, Abdomen and Pelvis

  • pulmonary embolus
  • aortic aneurysms, prior to and following open or endovascular repair
  • dissections, intramural hematoma, and penetrating atherosclerotic ulcers
  • vasculitis
  • renal artery stenosis, including fibromuscular dysplasia
  • mesenteric ischemia

Extremities

  • acute and chronic peripheral vascular disease
  • vascular malformations
  • thoracic outlet syndrome

 

3D Lab

The CT and MRI 3D labs provide advanced 3D visualization and post-processing for optimal visualization of anatomy, pathology and surgical planning. This includes visualization and quantification of four-dimensional (4D) flow MRI and generating patient-specific 3D printed models to assist with complex surgery.
