What do the results of cardiac CT tell us?

Consultant Cardiologist Joban Sehmi explains the results of the heart health test cardiac CT

The results of cardiac CT are usually available on the day of the scan.

A cardiologist and a radiologist will report the findings. Now there’s much information that is available in the results.

The most important is to try and understand why you may have symptoms of chest pain. We get three-dimensional images of all the arteries of the heart, and the main purpose of the CT scan is to ensure that there are no significant narrowings that may provide an explanation for why you’re feeling unwell…

If significant narrowings are identified, then your cardiologist may refer you for some further investigations or interventions.

However, if mild narrowings are found, a cardiologist has the mandate to start the appropriate medication to prevent you from having a heart attack in the future.

Not only does a cardiac CT allow you to look at the heart, but it also allows you to look at the lungs and the other structures within the chest wall.

I invite you to book a consultation with Many Beats if you have any concerns about your heart health or if you’re concerned about risks for heart health going forward. We will see you in a timely fashion in a location in London, and we’ll provide you with a very streamlined service. You can get a lot of investigations done and a definitive management plan which is tailored to you as the individual.
