Computed tomography of the heart at the Isar Heart Center (Munich) 

Heart attack preventive care in the heart of Munich: imaging of the coronary vessels and a calcium score determined by a 128 layer, high-end CT.

CT-Angiographie des Herzens

Computer tomography (CT) makes possible the acquisition of 3-D datasets of the heart and its vessels. Modern high-resolution CT systems can create depictions of the entire heart along with the coronary vessels at a significantly reduced amount of radiation exposure, whereby calcification and stenosis can be recognized at an early stage.Blood vessel measurement - especially of the aorta - and the reproduction of blood filled structures (e.g., atrium and pulmonary veins) are indispensable in today’s cardiovascular medicine. Therefore, CT angiography plays a vital role for risk assessment in preventive medical care but also for the planning of an intervention.
At IHC we utilize a high-resolution CT system (128 layers) to plan ablation treatments, heart valve implantations and interventions on the coronary arteries (e.g., bypass surgery). Due to the radiation exposure from a CT examination, however, each use must be critically considered in advance. 
Along with our other imaging systems such as echocardiography (TTE, TEE and ICE), cardio-MRI and the angiographic procedure (Catheter, IVUS), the multi-slice CT examination procedure is an important tool for cardiovascular imaging at the IHC. 
Results from cardiac CT examinations are assessed by a team of medical specialists with their radiology colleagues from the Radiologicum.
