Lee Health Heart: Our Cardiac Imaging Experts 

Lee Health Heart Institute invites you to learn more about cardiac imaging! The cardiac imaging procedures offered at Lee Health allow our providers to see the heart's function, structure, and blood flow, aiding in diagnosing and treating cardiovascular conditions for our patients.

Understanding Cardiac Imaging

What is AI cardiac imaging?

Cardiac AI imaging refers to the utilization of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and algorithms to assist our expert radiologists and cardiologists in interpreting images, identifying patterns, and detecting abnormalities. This technology aims to improve the accuracy, efficiency, and clinical decision-making in diagnosing your cardiac health.

What is plaque composition?

Plaque composition is a crucial factor in determining the stability and vulnerability of coronary artery disease (CAD). Traditionally, assessing plaque composition required invasive procedures, but now, with advanced imaging technology it is paving the way for non-invasive and highly accurate evaluations. 

What are the different types of cardiac imaging tests?

Echocardiogram: Heart Imaging with Sound Waves

An echocardiogram, is a non-invasive test that uses sound waves to create real-time images of your heart. This diagnostic service provides a dynamic view of your heart's structure and function, allowing healthcare providers to assess heart health, detect abnormalities, and monitor conditions over time.

Cardiac MRI: Detailed Heart Imaging

Cardiac MRI, short for magnetic resonance imaging, is a non-invasive scan that uses powerful magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of your heart and blood vessels. This imaging service offers valuable insights into heart conditions, blood flow, and tissue health, aiding in the diagnosis and management of various heart-related issues.

Nuclear Cardiology: Evaluating Heart Function

Nuclear cardiology tests involve injecting a small amount of radioactive material into your bloodstream to assess heart function and blood flow. These tests help healthcare professionals diagnose heart diseases, evaluate treatment options, and determine the effectiveness of interventions, providing crucial information for personalized heart care.

Cardiac CTA Scan: A Closer Look at the Heart

Cardiac CTA scan, or computed tomography angiography, offer a non-invasive way to create detailed 3D images of the heart and its blood vessels. This service is instrumental in detecting coronary artery disease, assessing blood flow, and evaluating overall heart health. It's often used to determine the need for further interventions or to monitor heart conditions.
