A heart CT scan is a diagnostic test that can produce detailed X-ray images of the heart that may determine if a patient has an abnormal condition such as diseased valves, blockage, tumor, plaque buildup and even congenital heart disease. This diagnostic test is ordered when a physician and/or cardiologist suspects there are potential problems with the heart and/or valves found in blood tests and in a physician examination while conducting a complete medical history. A patient may have high risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol and other medical conditions that require urgent testing. Whereas there may be risks undergoing a Heart CT scan such as exposure to radiation and allergic reactions to dye, the radiologists and other medical professionals are ready to respond to any emergencies. However, a heart CT scan is normally safe and may provide an accurate picture to make a diagnosis.
