CT / CTA

CT

CT or CAT scans are special x-ray tests that produce cross-sectional images of the body using x-rays and a computer.

CTA

Computed tomography angiography or CTA is a computed tomography technique used to visualize arterial and venous vessels throughout the body. This ranges from arteries serving the brain to those bringing blood to the lungs, kidneys, arms, and legs.

Cardiovascular Computed Tomographic Angiography (CTA) is an emerging non-invasive, fast, and reliable study for evaluation of the heart, coronary arteries, and pulmonary veins. High resolution images acquired during diastole significantly reduces motion artifact seen with conventional CT which may obscure underlying pathology.
