Modern CT uses a non-invasive procedure that uses X-rays to make images of the heart. Modern CT scanners, or multidetector CT, or MDCT are quick and detailed. This advanced MDCT can take images of the beating heart, and show calcium and blockages in the heart arteries. Further MDCT is used to gather additional information on the heart’s structure and how well the heart pumps blood, fluid in the pericardial sac covering the surface of the heart, the amount of plaque buildup and narrowing of your coronary arteries and any abnormalities in the large blood vessels.
