What is CT angiography?

With this method, the condition of the patient's arteries and the percentage of their stenosis can be so well-determined, that the doctor can choose the type of treatment for patient’s condition with confidence. It is a cost reductive diagnostic way, which reduces complications after surgery. With this method, doctors can assure a shorter hospitalization for the problem. This kind of angiography does not need any catheter insertion which make it easier and more tolerable, it can take pictures from any artery such as brain, neck, heart, chest, abdomen (such as the kidneys and liver), pelvis, legs and hands. It also can give more precise anatomical detail, especially in small vessels.

• Patients with obstructive coronary artery diseases with symptoms • Patients older than 40 years with chest pain or other tests that show another problem • Patients with high risk of catheterization • Patients who need a diagnosis for before and after heart surgery. • Any patients with a problem of arteries that doctors will need an exact diagnosis test.

Sometimes the angiography should be done in emergency cases but if it is scheduled from before, the medical team asks about medical history, allergies. They take some special tests and the doctor will adjust the medicines such as insulin. Patients should not eat or drink from the midnight before the procedure. The doctor will give the patient some special medications to take before the procedure such as beta blockers or nitroglycerin.
