You could spend a lifetime worrying about your heart or in a few minutes find out if you really have to worry at all. The most effective treatment for heart disease is prevention. The earlier heart disease can be detected the sooner you can begin modifying your risk factors. For many people there are no warning signs of heart attacks. Half of the people who suffer heart attacks have normal levels of cholesterol and/or normal blood pressure. For over 150,000 Americans per year, the very first sign of coronary artery disease is sudden death.
Atlantic Medical Imaging has one of New Jersey’s most advanced cardiovascular imaging programs, providing comprehensive multimodality imaging for the full range of cardiovascular issues.
In 2001, AMI was the first imaging center in South Jersey to introduced coronary CT Angiography (CCTA), technologically the most advanced non-invasive CT exam for detecting coronary artery disease available in the world. Since then, AMI has accumulated one of the world’s largest case experiences of more than 10,000 examinations, setting the standard of excellence in coronary CTA.
With this groundbreaking technology, which provides unprecedented image quality, we are able to non-invasively capture images of the coronary arteries in fewer than five heartbeats. In 2007, AMI, in conjunction with GE Healthcare, developed Prospectively Gated coronary CTA. With this new technology, the radiation dose is dramatically reduced without compromising the image quality.
