Cardiac CT scans and calcium scores

CT scans are also performed in Colchester. These enable a non-invasive assessment of coronary arteries and detailed risk assessment of a patient. Dr Robinson is highly exprienced in the role of CT coronary angiograms and calcium scoring and will arrange these for patients where appropriate. Calcium scans take 10 minutes to perform and allow assessment of the heart arteries to detect any evidence of early disease in the walls of the artery. This now allows more accurate risk assessment of the individual and will help to identify asymptomatic people who may wish to consider early use of statin therapy.

Cardiac CT scans are a good non-invasive way of assessing the coronary arteries to see if there are narrowings or blockages. Dr Robinson uses these scans in his Colchester and Essex Cardiology practice to evaluate chest pain.
