Non Invasive Imaging

Non-invasive cardiac imaging is mostly used to detect the presence of any heart disease. Recently, with advancements in imaging technology, non-invasive imaging has also been used for the detection of presence, severity and prognosis of the cardiac disease. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging is a non-invasive tool to evaluate congenital heart disease in children and adults. Coronary CT angiography and MRI of coronary arteries provide an anatomical assessment of coronary stenosis, whereas the hemodynamic significance of a coronary artery stenosis can be assessed by stress myocardial perfusion imaging.
