Coronary CTA

Little Company of Mary now offers advance computerized tomography angiography (CTA) of the coronary arteries. This test utilizes a state-of-the-art 40-slice Philips Brilliance CT Scanner to provide detailed images of the coronary arteries and surrounding structures, including the myocardium, pericardium and aortic root.


Traditional coronary angiography displays only the vessel lumen and the degree of luminal narrowing, but CTA allows delineation of calcified and non-calcified lesions within the wall of the coronary that could cause narrowing of the arterial lumen.


CTA is less invasive than traditional angiography, and patients who are most likely to benefit are those who have atypical symptoms and are of low to intermediate risk for coronary artery disease. Patients are monitored by our staff of skilled professionals throughout the procedure. We strive to provide timely reporting of test results and will provide referring physicians with a CD or paper report of representative images for review and patient education.


Calcium Scoring

Little Company of Mary currently offers calcium scoring as a routine part of CT Angiography or as a stand-alone, non-contrast study. This tool can detect coronary atherosclerosis at an early stage and is useful in risk stratification.


At Little Company of Mary, patients have access to an advanced 40-slice Philips Brilliance CT scanner. This machine allows EKG gated, sub-second imaging of the heart for clear, crisp images of the cardiac structures. This test can be performed in seconds and is well-tolerated by all patients.


The presence of calcium in the coronary arteries correlates with the presence of coronary artery disease and can aid in determining a need for additional testing or treatment.

The fee for this exam is $300 is not billed to insurance.
